The automobile is yielded with one tow hook.It seems unreasonable to need two, since you"re either going to tow the car from the former of from the earlier but never ever from both sides.
Some where I review that there are tow hooks located in the battery compartment that the car? Anyway, i took the lid turn off yesterday and also didn"t watch anything other than the height of battery cover? do I dig deeper or space they simply not there? :dunno:

My tow hook is in the device bag situated in the battery compartment area under the tribe floor on my E93
I was not mindful that I gained a tow hook nor do I have any type of clue wherein it is .... :rofl: guess I much better start to walk look ....
On mine 2009 E90 that is on the ideal hand side in the trunk. There is a room where the packet the manuals fits nicely. If you pull off the optimal cover (which has the same color as the carpet) friend will discover an area underneath where the tools space stored. Over there is very little stuff in the "tool kit" but it does have a tow hook there.The battery is below there if you take the entire plastic contraption off. Ns can article pics later on if this sounds as well confusing... Misread the OPs statement...I thought the question was even if it is or no there is a second tow hook somewhere on the vehicle...
Your device kit is under the carpeted lid over the battery compartment, it have to look around like this:

A second two hook for E91 owners is no a poor idea. As soon as we configured the roof racks to organize our kayaks I wanted the alternative of tying down the bow and stern to the tow hooks. That turned the end that the length of the roof was enough to provide stable retention without additional lines. Maybe one day if i buy a brand-new ladder I"ll need the two tow hooks. It"s a great option come have, in my opinion.
Gary, you got more tools 보다 I did. I obtained the tow hook and also a screw driver. Incredible, but they cut ago on the devices for the 2009 version year.BTW, about two month after I obtained the car, someone stole a tow hook cover. Cost me about $70 to obtain two brand-new covers in and then obtain them painted. ("Figured I"d acquire a preventive made up.)"Figure it to be a high institution kid. (Jerk.)

It seems unreasonable to need two, since you"re one of two people going to tow the automobile from the prior of from the ago but never ever from both sides.
And ~ it"s towed up onto the flat bed, it"s walk to be tied down.If you have actually two tow hooks, it"s bound down making use of those. If you perform not, your automobile gets bound down making use of the one hook you have plus other else. If you"re lucky, you acquire a knowledgeable driver who ties under the end without a tow hook v the wheels. If you"re not lucky, you get a driver who ties your automobile down using suspension components. They have actually a high likelihood of being damaged, and you are then in for every kinds the fun gaining things right again (plus the included fun the convincing BMW the you didn"t damage the suspension by hitting a curb).Get the 2nd hook. Under $50 from a dealer, and also under $25 ~ above eBay.George

Gary, girlfriend got an ext tools 보다 I did. I got the tow hook and a screw driver. Incredible, however they cut back on the devices for the 2009 version year.BTW, around two months after I got the car, someone stole a tow hook cover. Cost me around $70 to gain two new covers in and also then gain them painted. ("Figured I"d obtain a preventive made up.)"Figure it was a high school kid. (Jerk.)
Sorry Professor, i was presenting merely an instance (from e90post). My device kit was choose yours, except the dealer chased down a pair that channel locks to throw in.

Professor, I"ve shed two of the tow hook covers (one former one back), and they cost around $100 each up below to buy and get painted. I doubt the touchless automobile washes the I use (not high school kids). I have both of lock glued in v silicone now.
Well, looks like I"m screwed...I checked both compartments under the tribe carpet and also nothing,,nada. No tool kit, hooks etc. Is this something that "should" have come v the car? If so, I"m making a speak to today.
Your auto must come with a device kit. The variety of tools present depends ~ above the year the auto was made. The newer the car, the less variety of tools will certainly be provided. However, friend must have something. At a minimum, one tow hook and also a screwdriver.
professor,I have actually a more recent car and the tool kit was situated under the floor pan in the tribe in the middle by the battery in a little vinyl or plastic case. The just had actually a tow hook and a screw driver. What considerable tool kit ... LOL
Hooray! (I think) I uncovered the device kit under the center lid that the stems (not in the battery box)...Very impressive... Lock should speak to it the"hook and also driver bag" BTW, what would certainly one use the screw driver for? nice pathetic tool kit if girlfriend ask me. Mine Bombardier ATV came with a device kit to die for...It has actually a Rotax engine i m sorry is probably much more reliable 보다 the BMW....and can have come with simply a screw driver. Ns couldn"t tell native looking at the center trunk cover/lid that it also opened...That was the actual highlite...good hiding location for what ever. Many thanks all for the help. If I ever have a malfunction on the road, I"ll hand the screw driver come the tow driver "here, this is supposedly all you need. Oh, and the tow hook."
The tow hook cover to be going to be way more high value if I had it every done through the dealer. Ns think they wanted $50 a piece to paint them. However a small bird told me about an live independence repair location that can paint them for $45 the pair. So, in the end, I obtained them both and also got them both painted for around $70.
