    Sun Visor

    Hi everyone
    Does anyone have a problem with the mirror cover in the sun visor?
    Covers on both sun visors broke off. Hinges are very delicate and they seem to have disintegrated with age.
    I could not find a standalone cover. Only complete sun visors are available at $500+ each.
    Thoughts?

    Hi -

    I had one of mine broken off in 2015 and replaced it. At the time I paid $381 - now they look to be right at $500. OUCH!

    I had a cover on a sun visor break off last year when my daughter then 5 was "helping me" prepare the Z8 for a local car show, and with discount its replacement was about $500. I tried to repair the plastic and metal parts of the failed cover, but in the end I simply bought the replacement.

    in the US, the sun visor has an airbag warning, but the EU/ROW units do not. If you're considering replacing both visors that one decision you may want to consider.

    It's not a sticker, it's printed on the material (I forget whether the visor is leather or vinyl; me thinks leather).
