Audi Front Bumper Covers


Every work day I walk by a large parking lot and have noticed that all the Audis have a pair of plastic plugs in their front bumper covers. Most, but not all, of the other makes do not have these. What are they for?


They cover the tow hook installation point(s). Under the cover is a threaded hole into which a tow hook can be installed.


Some Porsches, Acuras, and other makes have similar openings in their bumper covers.


Thanks. Now I won’t have to use a screwdriver to pry one off to satisfy my curiousity.
