Tow Bar Dilema


I'm confused by tow bar prices and the models they purport to fit.

I want to buy a tow bar to to fit my 'S' registered Clio and as cheaply as possible.

Can anyone help?

I own a Clio 1st registered in January 1999

From what I've read the Clio Mk1 ran from 1990-1998.
And the Clio Mk II from 1998-2001 (and the a Mk II 2, 3, etc thereafter)

Tow bar manufacturers group the towbar models as being for:

Clio hatchbak 91-1998, and then:
Clio hatchback 98-2005.

I'm asking for help because the towbars to fit the 91-98 models are about 30-40 cheaper than their counterparts for the 98-2005 models.

Hence my question. Will a towbar described as being made for 91-98 model Clio's fit mine?

And moreover, is my Clio a 1999 model given it was 1st registered on the 4th January 1999? It's a 1.9 disel, 3dr, hatch with the letters ' RCS ' marked on the boot, and it's an 'S' registration.

Thanks for looking and for your help.
