Nope. On my first Kodiaq with an OEM-approved aftermarket towbar (New Zealand still uses 1 7/8” AS WELL as 50mm for whatever stupid reason) and my current Kodiaq with factory fit, it works fine with the towbar.

I have a factory fit electric tow bar and it does not effect the virtual pedal operation.

Hmm, I haven't tried the virtual pedal, but I have found that when I have my trailer attached, if you pull the switch in the driver's door to open the tailgate, then it doesn't open, it only releases the catch but stays lowered. You have to walk to the rear of the car and use the manual release to get the tailgate to open. Guess it's a safety feature in case you park at a funny angle that risks the tailgate coming in contact with the trailer?
