Not sure why they would be manufactured differently.
Thats what I thought as I had to try remove them before and thought they were fused to the vinyl visor. I just noticed that it was really hot and almost malable just started to tug on the corner and it slowly peeled off.
Not completely perfect as I can still vaguely see an outline of where the label was.

I havent tried to remove the marks, it might come off better. It was hard to take a picture of it showing the outline. I'm much happier with it gone

i used a damp rag and an iron, worked perfect, leaves a tiny outline but barely noticible unless you're looking for it.

Here is a different look for the rear bumper. No pics. Just go to your local sign guy or computer graphics guy. Get 4, 4" black circles, cut them in half. Measure the distance from the driver side rear wheel well to the exhaust cutout. Apply one of the half circles with the flat part down onto the passenger side, using your measurement. At that point it will look like a dual exhaust cutout. To complete the look, put the next one in the center and then center the others across the bumper. When done it will have the "scalloped" look. It will only work on light colored cars. Looks great for less than $20 and no need to buy a complete rear fascia for $200 - $300.

This mod basically allows the foglights to be turned on with just the parking lights. In addition, when your highbeams are on, the foglights will also remain on.

The 05-07 you can already do that, no need for the mod. I know for sure my girlfriend's 07 you can.

I don't have fogs so I wouldn't know.

not sure about 08+

2008 stock is either fog or high, not both. One needs to mod that.
