any hitches out there?

There is no way a hitch from the older 5000/200 series will fit a '91 200 20V tq or V8,  or vice versa.  The latter is significantly wider and the dual exhaust configuration needs to be accounted for.

Installation should be around 6 hours for either car - tow braket needs to be cut.  Save installation time by removing the rear bumper!

The 5000/200 non-20V hitch was around $240 and the 20V200 /V8 hitch around $280.  They are contructed the same way, so it is a case of charging more for the rarer model.

When I sold my 86 Avant, I pulled the hitch off, sandblasted and repainted 
only to discover it would not fit my 91 Avant.  The 91 is narrower to clear the 
twin tip exhaust.

I am supprised that yours fit.  Hoverer, I think the 91 hitch would fit an 
older model.
