Default What is the circle in the front bumper of the Scion Tc's purpose??

Odd question, I know, but I just got an '06 TC and it's been bugging me. There's only one circle, at least put another circle on the other side of the damn bumper?! Seriously though, what's it for? Is it there for an upgrade option? Maybe a light or something?

It is the cover for the tow hook, most cars that are also sold in the EU will have them, as they are (wisely) required by legislation in most european countries.

As stated above it's for the tow hook. And it does look ugly with just one circle on the one side.

its for towing. if you look back there where your spare tire is. yes i no the yellow is wild.lol there is a 6 inch bolt that has a eye hook on one end and the other is threaded. take it to the front of the car pop out the cover and this bolt spins into the seat so it can be pulled out or can be pulled onto a trailer without hurting your bumper covers. keep in mind it maybe be ugly but its there to save you money in the long run. hope this helps.
