Mein Auto: 99 Z3 Coupe
Z3 coupe sagging headliner

New to me 99 Z3 coupe,

sagging headliner.

What are folks replacing this with?

I'm not real fond of the original fabric.


I've searched the forum looking for solutions but not found much.

I see how to remove the headliner, but what are people replacing it with. There must be a better/nicer material.

Buy oem replacement, or go to custom car upholstery shop and have it recovered. I will probably remove and take to a shop. Currently I try not to look at it.

Mein Auto: 2000 Imola M Coupe
Headliner

Same issue with mine. sagging. My research led me to determing getting the part in and out of the car is the big trick. unless you remove the windshield. The headliner can be bent I understand and it will spring back. (I hope) My plan is to use Alcantera.
