Angry Cigarette burn rescue mission

What can I do to repair/cover-up a cigarette burn on the roof liner of my 2010 3-series. My wife feels terrible. The burn is not bad but the mark is devastating to my visual standard.

Ok...I guess I am "really" logged in this time...rookie mistake. I work at a large Toyota dealership, and we have in-house third party vendors that do all of our trade interiors. Interior Magic is the company we use, but any bigger dealership will have their own in-house or third party interior restoration group. Probably if you go talk to their used car manager and he is a decent guy, he will put you directly in touch with the interior folks. Probably for $25-40 they can get you 90-95% back to whole.

No problem at all...they really are pretty amazing, and they should be able to give you a very good sense in advance of what the outcome will be. Both that and PDR (paintless dent repair) are some sort of black magic...lots of strange tools and potions and seemingly impossible results!
