Hi all,

I just took delivery of my huracan. While I love it, there is a small issue with the glass engine cover. When looking through the rear view mirror, the engine cover has a noticable reflection of the carbon covering the engine. This is especially annoying at night.

Has anyone found a fix for this? I need rear visibility to look out for 'ninja' cop cars disguised as normal cars. Thanks much.

Hi naz124,
I've been following this waiting for someone to answer, and I'm surprised that no one has yet. It must just be a slow day. Anyways, I'm really at a loss as to how you can prevent the reflection. My first thoughts would be a non-reflective film (3M makes some), but I don't know how well those films take to heat (and I would assume it would get hot since it's right above the engine!). A potential problem with films, besides the chance of it melting :O, is that it could warp and bubble from the heat. A second, but a bit more labor intensive, alternative might be non-reflective sprays. The glass can be removed and sprayed with a matte, non-reflective clear coat. Also, I'm not sure how they would affect visibility, but I'm pretty sure a spray would be less of an issue as it would be much thinner than any film. Now, these are just possibilities that came to mind. I have no direct experience so I can't say with any certainty on what's out there and what's good (will work) for this particular situation. I hope someone who has better knowledge will be able to chime in.

I feel like I have similar problems with the gallardo spyder windshield reflecting the dash at certain times and I've been trying to figure out a theoretical solution to this problem.

The only thing I can think of is to polarize the glass but no one seems to make a polarized tint.
