Arrow Euro Sun-Visors

Wanted to share a few pictures of the Euro Sun-Visors that I installed on a customer's car.

It's surprising how such a minor change makes a difference to the interior of the car. It feels like you have more space inside the cabin and it looks much cleaner!

We tried the "Goof Off" method but it didn't look / smell good. After the sticker is removed, you can still see the imprint of it on the sun visor, which makes it look kind of cheap.

I have one more set in stock, so feel free to contact me if you have any questions

Very nice. I tried to order those when I first got my car, but I was denied. I will re-try.

I have those too on my M3, but I ordered that with my anthracite headliner when I had my E92 335xi. I think they are not too unreasonably priced.

You won't be able to get it from a US dealer. Try Renn-spec.

There is at least one company that sells black (and other colors) matching cloth self-adhesive cut in the size/shape of the warning label. You just apply it like a sticker over the label and it disappears. Cost was like $10 or $15 if I remember correctly.

Can anyone confirm the part numbers for these? Can't stand the cheapness of the plastic or the stickers, getting ready to order a set for my '11 and want to make sure these are the right ones:

Left

MFG Part #51167960063

Right

MFG Part #51167960064

Respect to OP for doing it the "right way". $300+ is too much to spend for a stickerless life imo.

FYI- Acetone takes the sticker off in less than 5 minutes. You don't even have to wait for the stuff to soak in. Apply acetone to microfiber, rub sticker off. And the visor plastic remains unharmed.

I definitely understand people not wanting to spend the ~$230, but it's also nice to have the Anthracite sun visors to match the headliner instead of the cheap plastic on the '11+.
