I like these even better...

I believe these are still available from HSI Motor Sport in Germany. Don't know the price...

These were available last year on ebay in the UK. Have not seen them since...

I guess that about covers it for aluminum valve covers for the 2.9L... Gotta go to Europe if you want some class.

I've inquired into the price of the HSI covers and the cost to ship to PA, USA.
I'll let you know what I hear.

The response from HSI MotorSport in Germany...
"Wir versenden nicht nach Amerika. Schöne Grüße "

To heck with them. One day Brexit will end, and Dr. Trump will cut a great trade deal with the UK.
And then, maybe those "Cologne" labeled valve covers will fly across the pond.

Ugh that is disappointing. If you *really* wanted them, then you could find someone in the EU that would receive them and then re-ship.

Here are the ones that say Cologne on them!! Looks like you can get any lettering you want, and they say they ship worldwide

Wow - Thanks for the link!

A little pricey 225 euros but given the fact that they can put any lettering on the covers it is actually very reasonable.

Here are some of with the custom lettering...
