I'd like to get your input on a tow car. I've decided to get the best out of the 620R and visit tracks further a field than just Oulton, however I don't want to drive there. So a trailer is the way to go.
With this plan in mind I swapped out our daily for a used Subaru Forester, but it's not gone well and we're getting our money back. Please note the used market on the IOM is terrible, and buying from the UK is always tricky. Anyhow I've decided to use a bit more cash and buy something newer, the plan is 3 series touring. For me they are the best estate on the road. Please note the wife will drive it daily, and she doesn't want to go too large, so a 5 series is out. Plus I'm not a fan of SUVs at all, a Forester (STI) was the rare exception. I also want the spec of the car to fit 99% of its use, not 1% of its use. So a new spec 3 series touring seems the perfect daily.
Now I've read a number of threads regarding trailers, and the general view seems to be a twin axle is better. But I'm unsure of the tow car. The 3 series towing capacity is within range for a trailer plus Seven. But with no experience of I'm a little uncertain of what I'm doing.
I have towed before, had a practice some weeks back using a friends L200 and a large twin axle, it was pretty easy.
Is a 3 series OK? I really am blind here, thanks
