Mercedes C Class Coupe Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Mercedes C Class Coupe vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.
