which if your not the orig owner prolly isn't there. Every tow truck driver will take those thinking he'll keep it for next time he tows a BMW. I've never ever seen a used BMW with the original tow hook in the car.

sorry if this is a stupid question, but how does one only use the tow hook on the side of the car, not down the center ?
I have no idea, but the one on the front is the same way, off to one side. Bmw seems to know what its doing with everything else, so I gave up wondering, and just trust that it will work as well as the rest of my car does.
flatbed tow truck? It's called a rollback. Not being rude, but for some weird reason, it insults the driver's to call it anything else. I got to know my local "rollback" drivers well during my Porsche days. Gota love AAA with the free towing. I always found it was a good idea to keep those guys happy when dragging your baby around!
Q, the hole in the back (in the pic) is for a tow hook in your tool kit (trunk lid). Wouldn't tow it with that, like stated earlier, it is just to get it on the rollback.
And yes guys, always DEMAND a roll back. My roomate didn't, and the MORONIC tow truck driver dragged his Mercedes E320 by its rear wheels for 8miles. Guess who had to sue to get a new $8000 tranny?
wow that must have sucked. so rollback it is. just curious...what if you end up parking in a tow zone (not saying i would intentionally) and got towed.......are the chances of what happened to ur friend high then ? and can we fight that ?
