a) Yes, its the tow hook cover

b) it only looks bad ass on a fully modded car that looks like it actually belongs on the track. It'll look stupid on a stocker.

The cool thing about the tow hook is you can bolt a license plate frame at the end of it so you won't get a ticket for not having a front plate. I'm tired of reading threads about kids whining about how to do a quick ghetto way to put a front plate on and get it written off.
