So am I missing some sort of secret or do the sun visors not extend lengthwise? Maybe I am unique in doing a bit of west bound driving but the sun is frequently coming in through the drive side window and that tiny visor aint worth nothing if I can't extend it so it actually blocks the window...

does that secret lock button at the back of the center console lock and unlock the visors too?

well that aint cool.. I'd trade that mystery lock button for some adjustable sun visors anyday... Only car I own that you cant do something to extend the reach of the visors..

Does any Audi sun visor extend? If so it might be time for a swap.

I had a 2009 VW Jetta TDI and it pissed me off with no Homelink. I found a VW EOS homelink visor that was just about the same size.

It was an easy install for the Homelink wires as I tied them into the wires for the mirror.

I have NOT seen a single Audi (even German for that matter) sun visor extender...

I've never actually owned a car with sun visors that extend - 2004 Golf, 2006 Jetta, 2009 A3, 2012 S60 - so are there European cars that have this? It's really never bothered me at all, if I'm honest but maybe I just don't know what I'm missing?

I see I am not entirely alone. I extend them all the time in the other car. Not sure its worth hundreds of dollars to replace but I was surprised when I couldn't get them to extend. They are pretty much useless when you try to block the side windows.

I'll see how I really feel in the summer..

I had same problem with mine not having extenders.
I found a aftermarket company that makes sun visor extenders called Visormates.
Quick and inexpensive fix to block side window sun while driving.

Add2visor

Also I am seeing a product called add2visor, it clips on and you fold it around when you need it. Not wure if the clip part will damage the visor though. Thoughts?

Yea, I'm thinking that there must be plenty of after market sun visors that you could get if this is something you want to change.

That add2visor product looks like it'll work pretty well. I don't see how it would damage the visor, and if it did I'm sure you could just put more padding or paper between the clip and the visor and it would take care of the problem.

Just watch out for those visors that only show up on eBay by brands no one has heard of, wouldn't like to know what the fitment from them is like!

I just picked up my 2016 Premium Plus and can confirm that the visors do in fact extend on both sides.

I have this on my 07' VW rabbit as well so odd to read mention on VW's and German cars not having this.

We at one time owned a '98 Passat and there was a little flip down visor to cover the space between the rear view mirror and the headliner which I found to be very helpful and never seen in another vehicle.
