    Has anybody tried to remove the visor airbag stickers the M3? I did it back in the day on my bimmer, and I want to say I accomplished it using rubbing alcohol and maybe even a hair dryer.

    On my older car I put engraved billet plates over them. Kind of like this:

    If people are really interested, I could organize a group buy to create ones for our car. They usually run about $50-$70 dollars a pair.

    There are other cheaper options, where you get a different type of sticker to put over the airbag one.

    I hate all of those warnings so I will defintiely be interested in a solution. I had actually replaced the ones on my Lexus way back when. I was able to order some that had no warnings and were otherwise identical including the power for the mirror light. I hope someone steps up to make a quick buck offering those for the 3.

    In my old Altima, I actually waited till it was a hot day. Summer weather was a heat wave in the 90's.

    i got into the car and I was able to just peel them both off. No heat wave here yet, might need to use the ol' heat gun.

    I just soaked a rag with IPA then applied it to the edges of the sticker so the alcohol could soak up underneath the sticker. I slowly peeled it and kept applying the alcohol. Sometimes the sticker will break and you have to start peeling again but it'll come off.

    I'll post some pics later but it looks much better. You can see a faint outline of where the sticker was but it's not too bad. You wouldn't notice unless you were looking for it.

    I just wanted to say thanks for this tip. After seeing it here and on reddit, it was the first thing I did to my car when I brought it home and it looks much better without those warning stickers.
