Josh...
I've done a few different cars. Not just BMW, but Volvo, chevy etc. If you have minimal technical experience you can pull it of yourself. Most recently I did my Silverado, my beater truck that protects my BMW from the NW Ohio winters.

Here is a link to that video.


Couple of things to be aware of...
You can use whatever material you want to cover the headliner with. But, I will advise this be conservative, get a fuzzy or suede, I prefer 'fuzzy' almost like a thin blanket material from a fabric store, and don't go with a vivid pattern, either a subtle or no pattern works well. I always like to recommend black because that will work with any interior.

Next your A pillars and C pillars can be covered with the same material if you want...be aware of the airbags and the connections! If you decide to do the A pillars...

When you pull your old material off you can use it as a pattern. to rough it in, don't cut to close to the original ...leave yourself some space.

After the material is in place then work the edges and trim off excesses. Then cut any holes you have to for the sunroof, and overhead console etc...

Doing a headliner is very easy and very rewarding. Take your time and use good adhesive...

Good Luck
