Re: tow hook (sum1namedjames)

hrmm... wait... this front tow hook thing... why?
I ask because I'm wondering if you might be on to something for the front plate states. On the white lotus below the hook is holding on the bracket for the front plate:

I don't suppose that's where you're going with this?
edited to make captain "it's a lotus" happy

Eh, Potato... pototo...
Edited it to make you happy. That's actually pretty obvious shoulda paid closer attention... after all the URL says lotus right in it. The point is the tow hook though, not the car.
Along the same line as the lotus though... Stillen even makes some studs that go right into the tow hook receiver.

Re: tow hook (sum1namedjames)

I use to run one on my Old GTi: Idk, just liked the look. Had no function.



You can kinda see it in there.

I have yet to look for a spot on the A4.

Re: tow hook (Love 4 Veedub)

next time someone has their bumper off, please remember my question, and let us all have an answer.

thats not a bad idea, Ive had a couple friends cars get destroyed by towing companies not knowing what they were doing, then again I dont know if a tow hook would remedy that situation, but the plate holder is a neat idea as well

paying the bank note on time may help remedy that particular problem...

I never really understood that idea, the plate is still there and ugly as ever, why put it off center?
Either delete it, or leave it in the center

i think that on b6's there is a little cover there for the tow hook, so you dont have to drill any holes in the bumper.
edit:
yea, they have a little cover that you can pull off.
it is just down and right of the passenger washer cover on this b6:

and it is a little circle on this b7:

Re: (verb.move)

i took off my lower side grille and found there is a built in tow hook hidden inside there. it could be cut and extended to be shown, but im most likely not going to do that.
