I've seen videos of owners of other cars who are able to extend their sun visors after moving them away from their stowed position. I quite often move mine to the side and think it would be helpful if it was extendable but don't want to damage it if it's not designed to do that, can anyone confirm if Mercedes sun visors are extendable or not please?
 
Mine neither
 
It's the 'longer' cars that have it... my C-Class didn't. I think you get it from the E-Class upward.
 
I've seen those and think a car I used to have had this but not sure it was on a Merc. My last two E classes had multiple visors which were very useful - W211 with four and W124 with three.
 
I do believe it was an option on some MB and standard on others. It is a glaring oversight (see what I did there ☀️ ) and penny pinching for them not to be stock on a 'premium' brand.

I have noticed on my recent trips to the USA they have been present on most hire cars I have driven here Chrysler , Jeep (Fiat), Chevy, Mustang and this time a Dodge GT Challenger which not only extends on its pivot bar but also has a little plastic flap that pulls out of the sun visor to extend it even more . Very handy.

But the budget is there to add these useful things as stock in these cars because they are built WAY down to a price, talk about tin and cheap plastic !

One of the neat features on my old Skoda Octavia was the 'third' sunvisor that could be flipped down to fill up the annoying gap between the two main ones behind the rearview mirror. The built-in carpark ticket holder in the windscreen pillar was good too......

That was the third visor on my old W124!
