I always feel tow hooks are something to be ashamed of (who likes breakdowns?), and should be concealed inside the bumper properly at all times. Making the tow-hook stand out visually is like the car saying "Hey, I'm ready to be towed anytime. Look, even my tow-hook is beautified and kept exposed since it is used so frequently!" . Just my personal opinion though, maybe I'm a little too old-school.

Tow hooks are a main part of modification everywhere, I saw many modified cars with these, in Thailand as well.
