    Ok I had enough, the front sun visors is a joke, wish it extended so I can cover the sides when needed.

    Been driving home from work and the sun is hitting my face and it's so hot I can't stand it anymore.

    Amazing how powerful the sun is lol

    I see some minis with a flap on the side, mine has nothing not even grab handles.

    But are the mounting holes still there so I can retrofit one??

    Not sure what visor you mean. Do you have a picture?

    I have it on my 2 '06 R53s...a GREAT help, especially, like you, I am blinded by the lack thereof on my '03 R50. If a retrofit exists, I'd be willing to add it to the Cooper.

    Those are nice. I can't remember what is under the headliner in that spot. If there is a rib there you could probably di it.

    I have this on my 2013 Countryman. The side visor doesn't usually block the sun for me because I'm short and keep the seat at minimum height. I've been tossing about ideas to attach an extender.
