The sun visors should, as stated  under the Sliding roof-section, have the same cloth material as the headliner of a none-sunroof car. In my case the fabric is probably wrong due to the problems I had with the supplier of the headliner…  Naja, I'm very satisfied anyway. As a protection there is a thumb grip insert made of vinyl in the same color as the rest of the interior. Can be worth mentioning that it was the guy who did the sliding roof who also did these.

See also the article Webasto sliding roof about the wind deflector - it also shades the sun :).

Straps

Regarding the hand straps it's said that it should be in cloth and the color adapted to the headliner material since it is mounted on the B-pillar above the part that is leather. But I'm not 100% on this yet. Feel free to comment on this.

Work in progress....
