Thanks again guys,

Is your original headliner damaged?

I'd venture the dealer can get you that. They're a bulky part so shipping would otherwise probably cancel out any savings you might get going aftermarket or online.

Here's a DIY for an e38 with lots of pics. I think there's one step ... probably removing the rear clips on the sunroof .... that's different. (Haven't done it myself....)

If I were going after a genuine headliner, I might try a salvage-yard source first. These things are not cheap.

If you want to check with your dealer, here's the realoem link showing all the stuff up there in addition to the headliner itself. (Click on the illustrations for part #s.)
