WHOAA!!! that is nice

Ah, but you must carry a brush with you at all times to keep all the knap going in the same direction, or the suede police will ticket you!


:rofl:


Looks nice!

I called my local BMW dealer to see if they could do it, but they referred me to a place called Rayco. The foam behind the headliner was split (some stuck to the headliner, some stuck to the roof), like how an Oreo is when you split it apart.... That being said, it wasn't re-glue-able because the glue would be uneven, wouldn't stick properly, and could seep through the liner itself. This being the case, I decided to go all out and get everything redone so it all matched. I just ordered alcantara e-brake and shift boots to match. When I install these and get the back speaker deck done, I'll post pics of the completed "project." Thanks for the interest and compliments guys!

If you don't mind me asking how did this little project cost?

e36m31993 06-24-2011 08:22 PM

$650 not including the boots I just ordered.

Eight Thirty 06-24-2011 08:25 PM

oh **** that..... like 650?!?!?!?

e36m31993 06-24-2011 08:47 PM

Yes. This price was for the roof, the four pillars, the back deck, and the sunroof. The guy there said taking out the sunroof was a $100 job in itself. The suede material was another $100 or so. So if you get just a normal material on a non-sunroof car, it would be around $450. Not bad, I think... :dunno:

About to get mine done and was quoted $400, that was with sunroof done aswell but I have removed all the old fabric and scraped any foam stuck on so that would make a difference.

Turo37765 06-25-2011 02:14 AM

Very very nice, thinking of doing this to my new F10

Yea I paid $450 for all mine in black...sounds pretty much dead on.

Moeman10 06-27-2011 01:48 PM

Uh, I paid like $50 for my new headliner.


I did it myself.

That looks mad! Can't wait for exams to be over so I can redo mine!

Eight Thirty 06-27-2011 06:30 PM

I just cant justify spending 650$$ on that... idk... still gets to me

TnT817 06-28-2011 12:55 AM

I did mine for 35. :)
Yes that was the pillars and deck as well. This was before I did the sunroof but its done now.

how did you guys manage not to snap off any of those tabs that keep the pillars on, and is there a fix for it?

B1MM3R 06-28-2011 07:26 AM

If I could do it over again I would do mine my self, but the place that did my headliner also fixed my broken sunroof....would not close and it was winter time so had to get it done quick...so $450 wasnt bad for headliner and fixing sunroof i dont guess.

MikoPr 06-28-2011 08:40 PM

I should have mine done in 2-3 weeks I think I'll post a DIY. its going to be vented padded vinyl like the black seats with all the dots holes in it.
