Default Rear and Front tow hooks

How do you WRX/STI guys feel about rear or front tow hooks? Yes or no? If yes, who?

Keep the stock ones. Is your car really breaking down enough that it has to be towed often enough for permanent and obnoxious hooks? Most of the aftermarket ones aren't even functional anyways.

Don't install them. They are hideous. If I had to choose between a fart can exhaust and tow hooks, I'd choose the exhaust.

I eventually plan on getting some tow hooks myself. Not because I track 3-4 times a year, but in the event my car is towed without me being there, I don't want them messing up my lip. Who cares if other people think they look ugly, it's not their car. I personally think they look good if done properly (no useless ebay garbage), but it's going to be pricey...

But that's what tax return season is for

Like most of the other crap we put on the exteriors of our cars, tow hooks are mainly a cosmetic thing. That being said, you can make mine out in this pic.

Its deff. a ricer only thing around here, I think I've even seen 3 on one honda haha. That being said "To each their own" Not everyone it going to like your ride no matter what you add/leave stock/shave/paint/delete/the list goes on..... but if you like your car the way you've do it up, that's a "win" in my book.

But be a man... post pics when add your hook. You might open an eye or two and you'll most likely get flamed. but that's all in good fun

If you want to be super trendy go ahead and attach some sort of stuffed animal to your rear tow hook

reviving old thread, but I've been on Google for a bit and am wondering where the stock front hook(s) is/are. I looked under the car and saw the rear, the front I assume is under the plastic cover (2004 WRX btw). My 00 RS had them there.

The front tow "hook" is an eye bolt that should be in the little factory tool bag in the trunk. When you need it you pop off the right front fog light cover and screw it in. Not sure what the '00 RS had.

A 5mph parking mishap can turn into frame damage with these towhooks.

Pretty stupid Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancement if you ask me.
