Has anyone noticed the airbag warning on the sunvisors is actually PAINTED on to the visor? At frist glance It looked like a sticker and then I tried to peel them off and it's paint!! WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS? IT's sooo ugly!

Actually the technique is called "in mold labeling" They are made of a compatible plastic and held in the mold by vacuum. When the resin is injected to form the visor, it bonds to the label making label and visor one piece. I'd say the next aftermarket item should be visors... with a lighted vanity mirror for the passenger.
