We got the X1 a week last Saturday and everything is working well - that is until I went to plug in the light bar for the bike rack.

The socket on the car is 13 pin whereas normal UK trailer sockets are 7 pin (as is the light bar). In a previous BMW car with a removable towbar there was an adapter lead.

I'm wondering whether this adapter lead is missing or whether they have just fitted the wrong socket to the car - either way, I'll be on the phone to the dealers tomorrow but wondered whether anyone had any experience on this???
