Sun visor warning label cover

The yellow warning labels on the sun visors annoy me so I checked into a way to cover them. First went to an upholstery business to match the alcantra material, but it only came with a thin foam backing which would show if glued to the label. Next I thought of the adhesive vinyl wrap material used for wrapping cars. They had a black low gloss which was close enough for me, and I cut a piece to fit. Not perfect, but better than the label. Most of you can probably do a better job of cutting than I, but I can live with it. Much cheaper than sourcing a European version of the sun visor. The flash from the camera exaggerates the difference between the vinyl and alcantra, it isn't nearly so harsh to the eye in the low light inside the car.

For those who want the "european" visors
You can order them via your local dealer and they will come without the warning label.

The part numbers are
LEFT SUN VISOR ANTHRAZIT 1 51168038105
RIGHT SUN VISOR ANTHRAZIT 1 51168038106

They run appr 180-200$ per side

Do you by any chance know the P/N for Amaro brown sun visors? Or where to find it?
