This multifunctional front mount is 3 products in one! This front mount can be set up as a -
- No Holes license plate bracket
- Camera mount
- 2" tow hook
- Or almost any combination of the above*
Now your license plate bracket can double as a mount for your Go-Pro or similar camera system. Or a tow hook with the camera for track use. Running one or multiple combinations is easy since each piece is mounted to the existing tow hook receptacle behind the bumper. No modification is required! Each piece threads into the tow hook for easy install and removal. Metric Allen keys are included. ECS engineers were unimpressed wtih other plate and holder materials on the market so all pieces in their kit are made from stainless steel or 4140 alloy steel with a tough resilient coating (aluminum and plain sheetmetal were found to deform after repeated use). Simulations show this plate mount to withstand speeds of up to 150mph!
This kit was developed for the front but may also fit on some rear tow hook locations. A different extension may be required.
* - the only combination not possible is the tow hook with the license plate bracket.
HARD Motorsport E46 M3 FS Retractable Tow Hooks offer a sleek, retractable tow hook designed to mount directly to your composite bumper support using OEM mounting points. Bruised shins and snags will no longer be an issue! Also, thanks to the hard finished red powder coating and black oxide base, it will look amazing and will resist corrosion.
- Front Retractable Tow Hook
- Front Tow Hook Bezel and 2 Rivets
- Bezel template for bumper modification

A tow strap is a better pickup point than a fixed steel ring, which will add weight and protrude past the bumper. Some racing series have banned the steel rings because they increase the likelihood of contact during close racing. Our straps are sold in bright red, bright blue, or black (red suggested for racing use as it makes it easy for tow truck operators and safety crews to spot). On some models, the strap may be tucked behind the bumper panel when not on track, which makes this perfect for dual-use track/street cars and full racecars alike. Priced per strap so order two for the front and rear.
