Any ideas other than getting advan to drill holes?

just be sure which one you buy, there are 2 that I know of, there is the 'L' shape (which i think is the best) and the 'W' shaped which sticks out a bit more.

Hey Steve, I'll definitely need a mount and I assume that Thony would need one as well but we'll have to wait for his response.

Does the OEM one only fit the fire extinguisher provided or will tighten/loosing to fit any small fire extinguisher?

Edit: Sorry, just read through the other thread a little further and found out the info. We'll be getting just the 1 black metal bracket bit with the holes yeah? Do you know how much it costs?

Current People Wanting the mount:

Alex, Edwin, Steve.

As soon as I get price and lead time I will let you all know.

Pretty sure tow hook is behind that cover on the bumper - I am guessing we just need to take off the plastic cover?

Nearly ready to install the G5 too - 2Step and No lift shift and speed limit removal - cant wait - hopefully will get me closer to edwin

Definitely go with the L shape bracket.

Yeh the tow hook is on the front bumper just under the drivers side headlight washer.

Exciting stuff Steve. I think I'll run the G5 with the flash for the event with straight 109 in the tank. That should squeeze every ounce out of these turbo's.

Yeah there are 2 tow hook points. One under the plastic cover on the front bumper and one under the plastic cover on the rear bumper. The actual hook itself is inside the trunk compartment in the tool thingy. I am assuming that we would need to actually screw the hook into one of the tow points when we are racing.
