Thank you.

Do you know the thread pattern? Trying to buy an aftermarket tow hook and read that BMW thread pattern is same. Helpful as there are not many options for McLaren. Trying to confirm.

Bump on this. I too would like to add an aftermarket red tow strap to the front end - like those on the MSO X.

Why don't you just use the one that came with the car?

That is from the GT4 570s I am sure.
Contact a McLaren GT store and see if they can order you one.

This is what I ended up doing. Just wanted something a bit more stylish.

I think CJ just had his stock one powder coated.

If you are looking for looks. It looks much better.

My front tow eye has been on the car since last May. Stock black. Bought a second one to put in back but there is no socket in the back. So if you go aggie you need to make sure you do it ass first into the weeds.

As you track out onto the straight keep the loud pedal mashed to the floor. Hit the brakes when you see God.

I went aggie today. Fortunately, I was able to drive out ok. First time ever. Still p'ed me off a bunch though.

On my 650S, it is M16x32, 115mm length before the hook.
It seems to be very similar to Toyota GT86.
Don't buy cheap aluminium tow hooks on Aliexpress, they broke when used.

My old 650S tow hook works on my 600LT, so they're the same.
