I Googled "removing sticker from suede" and to my astonishment, actually got some hits! They say that a pencil eraser will actually remove the goo from suede. (I'm still reluctant to use the Goof Off but also have that in the arsenal). Mark, I will message you if it doesn't work, for that eBay sticker info). Is that a real photo of your visor sticker?

Real photo? You bet is it. The only M6 with a champagne headliner is mine. I took the photo sitting in my garage with a DSLR. The sticker is the same height as OEM but slightly wider. Looks legit enough that my wife has not noticed it yet. She does not ride in the car that often, but has gone to dinner in it since I put the sticker in.

I have removed warning stickers off visors before using goof off; however, they weren't suede. I would definitely be careful because you really have to let the goof off soak in to remove the sticker & I would be afraid that it could possibly discolor the visor. I used goof off to remove some paint marks I got on the leather seats and it looked like it took off some of the finish on the leather.

Exactly. Ajax is going to approach this task with the diligence of a skilled brain surgeon.... well at least with the diligence of a Mexican meat cutter.

Appreciate that Snowball-- did an earlier search, but alas if you don't use the same keywords, you get no hit. Now that I know BMW uses faux leather instead of real suede (did notice the lack of stitching and weld seams instead) I think I'll probably bail on this one or use the low-brow humor coverup stickers and be happy with it.
