Hi all. Finding the sun visors a little too shallow for this time of year. No problem wearing sun glasses when road is wet as glare is not an issue. There is a problem when dry and low sun. Any effective visor extensions out there ? Not the tinted Perspex variety. Thanks in advance.

In pretty much any car I’ll pull the left side out of its hook and then move it closer to my face to block more of the road out and also move my head accordingly. Failing that, I guess you’ll be into eBay style attachment products.

I'm interested too; I drive into the sun in the morning, and on the way home again in the evening... why are the visors so small?

Agree about the shallow sun visors. My seat is set as high as I can get it & still I get blinded by the sun this time of year.
Poor design in my opinion.

Haha, Yeah the sunvisors are definitely as much use as tits on a fish.

A good welding mask works Laughing

Problem solved. Bought extension on Amazon as suggested. Not the prettiest sight in the world but effective.
