Does xi need the tow hook?

Does the tow truck driver need the tow hook for anything? I know that the xi has to have all 4 wheels off the ground. So can I remove the tow hook from the trunk? Whats it even used for anyway?


I know, super dumb question.

Yes the tow hook will be needed to pull the car onto the flat bed
Plus if you need to be recovered from the ditch or someplace your car shouldn't be it will be needed
