Jaguar towbar recommendations?

I would appreciate any comments on fitting a towbar to a 2006 X-Type 2.0 D.

Is it essential to have a 'swan-neck' tow ball for an Al-Ko   3004 hitch?

Does the towball interfere with reversing sensors in non towing use?

Finally which wiring system is best, isolating relays or integrated with system management software?

Your practical experience  would be appreciated.

I had a witter detachable bar fitted to my 2007 x type in April 2011, same model as yours and pull an alko hitch (not sure of the model number). I can't say which wiring system was used but it was fitted by at Castleford in West Yorkshire. It doesn't affect the reversing sensors. Hope this helps

Thanks for that 'Jollyroger'

Have now had fitted a Towtrust, standard flange, AlKo ball, separate electrics.
No problem of interference from ball with rear sensors reversing without the caravan. Smile

Excellent job done by 'The Towbar Centre' Poole

Not sure how you get no problems with parking sensors I have detachable and it certainly does affect the sensors when it's in place
