......to be able to attach a rear towing hook, you know the things that are usually hidden with little covers? I dont think they are, but thought id just see if anyone had other ideas?

Not entirely sure what you mean Matt, can you be more specific?

the towing eye, you know, the little round thing that sits behind a small flap on a bumper (or protrudes a little, depends on the car) that lets you tow a car or be towed.

I know it's a Stilo but shouldn't you be a little more optimistic?

If this is any help then I cut my rear eye off myself to let my exhaust sit better so it is no longer, I surely wouldn't be towing anyone, the only time it has hindered me was when my car got stuck on the brake tester at an MOT.

8 guys lifted it off though.

Towing eye also used to tie the car down if transported? Don't think it is an MOT requirement which is the basic requirement for a car to be road legal.
