Front parking sensor?

New 2007 V8V owner and I have a question: In the front lower black mesh grill on the right side only is a large round hole with some sort of screw socket looking thing behind the hole in the grill. Is that a parking sensor? I can't find anything in the book about it. The rear sensors work because I can hear the warning when I back out of the garage and get close to the side wall. Just wondering what that hole in the front grill is for.
Thanks.

It's for the tow hook. It's stored behind the driver's seat under the parcel shelf panel, and bolts into that hole when needed.

If you have parking sensors, there's a pair of them in the lower mesh up front. One is near the tow hook hole, and the other is on the other side.
