Default Pivoting Visors?

Does anyone know how I could modify/change the sun visors on a so that they pivot? I'm tired of being dazzled when the sun comes in the driver's side window.

I've posted this message on the 987 board with no responses. I presume it may be more helpful here because there are a lot more 986's than 87's.

Thanks in advance for your help.

adapt pivoting visors from another vehicle.

I feel your pain: After a recent road trip which involved spending hours driving with the sun coming in through the driver's side window I sure wish the visors pivoted against the side windows to help block sun from the side!

I got tired of holding my left hand up against my head to shield my eyes and while I had a baseball cap and used it, I had to put it on so ****-eyed to arrange the bill to block the sun that I still have goofy looking hair...

Sincerely,

Macster.

Do you know that IQ is directly related to the inverse of the degree of rotation of the baseball cap.

What's IQ? I don't wear a baseball cap.

Paint all the windows and drive blind? the visors suck in mine almost as much as the cup holder. I have also pondered this, and looked at other car's visors, but have not found anything...

I am reassured I bought the car for looks over practicality every time I try to use the visors... or the cup holders... or the glove box I don't have... or listen to the stereo... or need to transport something larger than a breadbox... or have more than 1 passenger... or pull out of a sloped driveway over 10 mph... or try to look behind me with the top up... BUT again, it's pretty :-)

Since on most sunny days, I've got the top down anyways, what's the point of a tiny visor I can rotate over? I'm supporting the baseball hat and RayBan sunglasses method!

well, no. I have the thing Porsche supplied that clips into the vent. It will hold a tall starbucks or a can of soda, but nothing larger... I think the Germans are trying to tell us that you should be focused more on driving and less on the Venti Caramel Macchiato...
