Maybe not as asthetically applealing as the US version but much more functional and practical being a 2" receiver...and it will never drag the pavement. As I posted somewhere else I saw a guy from Michigan with one of these on his. Maybe he works for GM and it was easy to source or possibly there is a US source for it, or maybe one can get it from Australia and ship it here along with the relocation bracket...

Hi Mate, i found this drawing which may be of use to you also. The location enables you in the unfortunate event you require a tow, you can put in a 2" reciever tow hook, rather than having to deal with the factory bumper tow hook.. As far as looks go i find it quite a clean look that you get used to after a while. I ordered another factory grey lower bumper panel which came with no holes. This was great as i used the original panel as a template to put in the sensor hole. The rest is blank which meant i could also mount the trailer light connection with no cables hanging underneath. I will take a photo of this over the weekend for you. Cheers!

ok here is a coupe more pics. Someone else asked about the extra storage space to the left. Yes, you could use this as more storage but its where the battery lives.

I wonder why they didn't use that side storage panel on all vehicles. I would have liked to have a cubby with a door. There isn't much space under the floor to store things, so this would have been a nice spot to keep stuff handy but not sliding all over.

Interesting... is the battery in the back because it is the V6? Are GS batteries in the back? Are the Holden 2.0T batteries in the back?

GS batteries are in the back. TourX and Sportbacks with the 2.0T have a cubby hole cut out there and the battery is in the engine bay.

yeah, I know about the cubby hole, that's why I was trying to figure out why the aussie had his battery in the back. the only explanation I could come up with is because he has the V6 and that maybe there wasn't room in the engine bay for a battery with the bigger engine... so then I wondered if that was true about the GS too. It was all one long stream of consciousness.
