e34 headlight washer removal

Hey guys i was looking at my car the other day thinking of ways to make it look cleaner when i noticed how ugly the headlight washers are on the car.



Does any one know how to remove them and if i do will it be painted under where they were?

TIA

Wouldn't you miss them in snow when the dirt gets on there too fast to keep stopping and cleaning it off (I know someone in Norway that says you simply need them)

even if you did get them off, there would probably be a big whole there where teh hose went, and you'd also have to deal with the problem of plugging the hoses or else all the washerfluid would leak out of there....

You could replace the bummper cover for about $200 + paint if you wanted to do the work (get one without washer openings)

E32's 750's or dependant on the options 740's had chrome covers instead of the black ones that you have. Im sure its the same part, just chromed.
