Thats pretty close to the same thing as reading the instructions kind of violates the code,,, But a darn good idea....

honestly this is the reason I just paid the extra money to go get it done professionaly. I am all for doing something myself but I have never done headliner before, I didnt want to have to go thru all the trouble and if you do it wrong the first time it ends up costing so much more doing it yourself and stressful. If your headliner is in major need of replacement...I would just pay someone to do it for you. $175 is well worth not having the headache of screwing something up and having to deal with it till you could fix it.

but that doesn't fit in with the male gene's "i MUST fix this!"

a headliner wouldn't SEEM hard to fix, but i agree with you, just get someone else to do it (and then if it falls again, they have to fix it ).

That is exactly what just happened to me, only mind fell on the passenger side. My windshield was replaced on Monday, I wonder if the repair shop caused it. So, what is the simple way to fix it?

They look like sun visors now later they'll be curtains.

Simple Way: Throw money at it, i.e., pay a professional to do it right the first time.

Other less "simple" (and less expensive) methods have been posted elsewhere in this thread, including IIRC a link to a DIY.

I'm replacing my headliner right now, I purchased the kit at wls head liners.

http://www.headlinerkit.com/bmw/index.shtml

I think it cost about $50 for the kit.

It comes with the 3M adhesive, will let you know how it turns out.

Taking it off wasn't too bad, it slides right out the rear hatch.

The hard part is getting all the old glue off of the fiberglass head board. I used my hands to roughly get most of it off. Then I actualy hosed it down and used the pumice/soap with a plastic brush in 20 minutes had it all off.

I'm waiting for it to dry, cut out the new piece from the fabric that was sent, glue it on to the old headliner board and replace.

I noticed the headliner did stick on around the edges to the roof of the car so homefully when I replace it goes back as well.

Thanks,

John

Anybody bother to check what a new headliner costs from BMW? Last time I checked it was only $200. Seems pretty cheap to me unless your time is really worth nothing! I glued the A-pillar covers and that was bad enough. If the kit doesn't include new fabric I'd not even bother.

I have a sagging headliner now...just called three different auto upholstery places...prices were $365, $300, $175. I'm going to the cheap place. As long as it's no longer sitting on my head anymore, I'll be happy.

Just read this whole thread and I've one burning question after seeing the first pair
of photos: am I the only TI with out lights above the sun visors??!!
It's so not fair. I'm a 98' with Cal-Roof--black headliner, which is cool.
I thought all TI didn't have illuminated visor mirrors.
