The fabric on the ceiling of my M3 has started to droop/detach. Are there any easy fixes out there that will last and not look too terrible? If not, I'm looking for shop recommendations - somewhere that will fix the problem and not cost me an arm and a leg.

Thanks in advance.

I recommend getting a replacement headliner out of a car that's being parted out.

I have used these guys to repair the fabric on the inner panel of the C pillar in my E46 and they did an AWESOME job matching color and making it look like new. Highly recommend them.

I have the same problem. Can anyone recommend a shop in MD?

Thanks, Fernando

If it's in the E30, contact Kevin Chin at creativeoptions.info. He also does fantastic replacement seat covers. The downside is that you'll have to install it yourself, or find someone to do it for you.

There was a longer thread on this subject earlier this year, but I can't find it. It had numerous recommendations for shops and DIY. I was pleased with the my replacement done by Sterling Hot Rods. They're next to Funktion Auto near Dulles. The owner is Tom Sweeten 703-996-1150.
