Yeah man, just get a block, wrap it with some sandpaper, and scrub off the valve cover. It'll look a lot better.

Car looks great! I've never liked tinted E30's, it was a really good idea losing it.

i had a place take off the tint for me..i heard bad stories about people trying to do it themselves...that it was left sticky and possibility of ruining the defogger lines so i just left it to professionals

i was thinking of putting a msg to trade windows with someone...i really didnt think anyone would be up for it tho.. sucks..i wish i knew u were looking for it

im really glad i got rid of it, i think it looks much better now, dunno what i was thinking with it

as for the engine covers, thats an awesome idea im gonna do that..looks a lot better with the lines and emblem showing
