G20 Chrome Dash Trim Sun Glare

My G20 330xi has chrome trim under the display screen that reflects the sun causing a glare that makes the display screen above it virtually unreadable on sunny days when the sun is in just about any position except behind you. Also, since the trim is wedge shaped, occasionally the glare reflects back into the driver's eyes.

I'm surprised there are no other complaints about this on this forum and I don't know where to begin finding a solution. You would think BMW would be flooded with complaints

2020 m340 same problem

The 2018 440 screen was hard to read with grey characters on black background. The 2020 m340 screen is impossible to read with the silver trim under the display screen. It completely blinds me. I will talk to the dealer when I pick up the license plates in a few days. I have a roll of black electric tape. It may not be pretty, but it might be safer.
