    Default replacement sun visor?

    My mother-in-law just got an E...she's been complaining that the sun visor isn't wide enough (on the mirror side)...she said my sister-in-laws Odyssey had visors with little slide out extensions...

    1. any chance the O visors will fit the E?

    2. are there any aftermarket visor extenders available?

    3. any other options available to her? (perhaps a tinted windshield banner?)

    thanks!

    Interesting, since a CR-V owner recently asked the same question about whether the Element visors would fit and he thought they were better (with slide out thingys). There is a link in the following thread to an aftermarket option; Extend-A-Visor.

    "The Honda's Element has this kind of sun visor"

    hmm, well her's is a brand new (maybe an 07) and I thought it was the top line model...and I just checked - it doesn't have the slide out thingy...

    I guess that it's either too much trouble for her to swing the visor around, or she's unusually tall or short.

    I have a problem with excessively wide passenger side sun-visors, I'm tall enough that they interfere with my being able to see clearly. I suggest that her best option would be to install tinted in-channel window visors, about $30 at PepBoys. I did this and also have a tint strip across the top of my E's windshield.

    The cheap way out of course is sunglasses. ;-D
