Creative Rear Tow Hooks

Looking to put a decorative rear tow hook on my white 335i for when I park. Instead of just the stock tow hook that looks like crap. Parking sucks here in NY and instead of using a bumper guard i'd rather put the tow hook.
Anyone have any cool ones?

I'd suggest getting a long one because of the way out rear bumpers curve and also the way other cars front bumpers curve (especially with a front license plate mount) they're going to hit your bumper anyway

This is what I did, I bought a tow hook from ECS - a front one though.

I live in Jersey City and was parking on the street for like 2 months when i first bought my car, so i was getting hit twice a week lol.

Theres nothing we can put on the rears just the front, I use one of those bumper guards. They don't look the greatest but for street parking in NY, its a must.

you don't find that it just grinds whatever dirt is on your bumper into the paint?

What about just finding a long bolt with the same threading as the tow hook?
