    Great pointers Dane. Washburn made me think about the fact that our cars should be towed on a flat bed only, and not "Dragged" (from the front or the back). Perhaps you should include that in your Words of Wisdom?

    I will contribute to the original listing.


    Your front tow hook mount is best used as a place to mount your front license plate.

    does that cover for the tow hook/ring just snap completely off or is it held by hinges?

    The plastic tow hook cover snaps on the right side and is held in by a piece of plastic with a flexible loop on it. Bend plastic loop and pull out tow hook cover. I can dismantle the trim on these cars (sedans for semantics sake) in about 5 minutes....oh the looks I got yesterday when I showed an Alpine White Zhp how to slide his molding right, insert his key, and pull hard to pop the bumper molding free. Obviously a sedan, hence the bumper molding.

    Be careful with your tow hook cover. If it isn't affixed properly and you need a tow, you will lose the cover and have to drive around with a primer grey cover until you can get it painted.

    Recommend removing the tow hook cover for towing operations and putting it in your tool kit in the trunk where your tow hook goes.

    Dane, argue might have been a bad choice of words, it can be adjusted within a safe window to the driver's liking.
