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!





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!

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...

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.

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.
