27 lucky souls! Like anyone buying ANY kind of new car needs to be told it has airbags?! Somehow we won't be as safe without a sticker most of us rarely see? :rolleyes:
Whatever... There's still gotta be 1000's of takata air bags out there, no biggie. Prius inverters are catching fire at 10 times the rate of ICE's, pphtpth! I'm sure those 27 will feel soooo much better. o_O

My 2018 has one, but it’s not a sticker. It’s sort of a vinyl transfer thing, that can’t be peeled off. At least it looks like it can’t.
They are ugly, wished I did t have one.
There goes that theory. I thought maybe you didn't have the stickers in Canada. Wrong.

So here's a business idea for someone: If you live in a country that doesn't have stickers on the visors, you can buy them from the parts department at your local Tesla store, and then sell them to people in the US and Canada that would like stickerless visors. [I'll take a 10% cut for having the idea. :)]
