Most likly you'll have to drill into the metal bumper under the cover and tap the hole then make a hole in the bumper cover in the same location.

Mazdaspeed6 and speed3 have a place in the front bumper for a tow hook to thread into. Several company's sell after market stuff for them.

Here's one from Cusco.


Here's a pic of a tow point on a speed3.



Here is one being used on my friend ronalds speed6 @ import alliance.

No no. I would think that style would be best for drilling and taping. Unless you can actually find a place to bolt the other to.

I've never seen a focus with a tow hook but I bet someone out there has.

The foci with tow hooks are not bolt ons. Usually something is fabbed up for the hook to work, whether its cutting or welding.

I have thought about doing this to my car cuz I like the look but never did because the hook ups arent there and honestly I wasnt that deadset on doing it. If I was I would have made it work. hell i dont know where you hook up exactly to tow. Luckily my ses bumper doesnt have foglights(I got lazy yes I know) and the one time I had to tow my car I ran the hooks through the fog light holes and found a solid mounting point. I have pity on whoever has fog lights because I looked and could find no where to hook up to. So I'm gonna say tow hooks are a no go unless you want to do some fabricating.
