rx8 s2 tow hook

Has anyone installed a tow hook on their s2 and can anyone recommend what to purchase?

is there any aftermarket tow hooks that can be used without much alteration to the front or rear bumper?

You should be able to buy any one thats similar to the oem tow hook thats in your trunk. If you need to know the thread pitch and all that take the tow hook inside home depot and put nuts on it until one fits good and then you will know the size and pitch so you can buy whatever one. Also just take the oem one and put it on and see what kind of clearance it has from the bumper to know how big of one you need to buy.

According to the ebay link in this thread its m20 x 2.5 for the bolt.

I use one made with an old seatbelt.
Schroth has something similar: http://www.racerindustries.com/store...8e42afuattenu3
Cheap and reliable. Tape it to the bumper and it's ready to hopefully not be used. It's also approved by fia.
