Dashboard HVAC vents

Has anyone else noticed that the only brightwork on the dashboard is the HVAC vent surrounds? And they are positioned perfectly so that when in direct sun, they are so reflective as to render the sideview mirror useless! The Compass windshield is at such a low angle that the sun has lots of opportunity. The vent surrounds reflect off the window glass and overpower anything that might be showing in the mirror.

Yes, I noticed that too. Just the driver's side.

OMG, yes! It's horrible. Does anyone know how to remove these vents? We were thinking maybe we can either replace them or have them painted to reduce the glare.

I have this problem too! The vents reflect on the windows and it makes using the side view mirror harder. I think I'm going to try placing some felt material on top of the vents to reduce glare; I don't use those vents anyways.
