    I know that all of us that have cars since 2014 have had to have this horrible label attached to the passenger side Sun Visor. My wife's A3 had one and I think they look bloody awful to say the least.
    I've read that the spec for these insists that they are not removable so that seems out of the question. It seems that the only option is to get one that doesn't have a label on it.
    Just so happens that I've been subscribed to a Facebook page for the SQ7 that is primarily for German speaking owners and one of those has contacted me to see if i could order for him a UK spec drivers side sun visor and he will pay for the part and postage to Austria.
    I am considering getting him to do the same for me ie: order a LHD drivers visor that won't have the label on and should fit quite easily on my passenger side.
    The cost is about equal, approx 95 for both of us.
    Can anyone see any problems with this? If so I'd like to know before agreeing.

    See no reason why not. You could just order a LHD one from your dealer in the UK, no need to go via another country. Just get the part number, ring your local Audi dealer and ask for one. They should order it still.

    Not sure if it must "legally" be on the visor though for the UK? (no idea).

    You can put a jokey sticker over it - Google "label on sun visor" for some ideas of what's available, or remove the sticker by the method shown here Removing sun visor sticker for 2015 Mustang - YouTube

    Thanks for that but the US manufacturers use a sticker that can be removed.
    After doing a little research someone posted up the specification for all EU manufacturers which said that the labels should not be able to be removed without causing damage to the visor and if you look closely at them you can see that they are almost embedded in the visor.
    I've not seen any vids of anyone removing one from an EU manufactured car. (Post 2014 when the legislation came into force)
