$280 including (Black Honda replacement) headliner. I did strip the original in 5min and sand it for another 30min to prep it for them though. Honda headliners are generally thinner and match the BMW thickness best.

Did it DIY with a buddy, 1 day approx., we were not in a hurry. Headliner DIY is relatively easy, did the first one on my E32 750iL abt. 15 years ago and by now more E32, E34, E31 and E36, some pics on my website below

Thanks, good additional info in there. Maybe I'll save it for a rainy day and take a crack at DIY. I have a lot on my plate at the moment, I'll update eventually someday when I get this finished. My other car is in the body shop right now so I'm kinda not trying to tear into the M3.

I'd suggest having a pro do the re covering as well, it is very difficult to properly get it laid down the first, second and even third time when you aren't used to working with fabric like that.
However, I agree with Braymond about the removal and reinstall, I'd rather do that part myself and know if the panel has been damaged (by me)

I did this DIY a few years ago using a pretty detailed write-up from Bfc (of all places!). I took my time on the project, and it took me ALL weekend. It was a bit of a pain in the aass in a couple places, but overall not too difficult. Also, after finishing, I probably could have easily done another one in less than 3 hours (excluding glue drying time).

I used 3M spray glue and an automotive grade black alcantara suede, which I really like. I didn't replace the liner on my sunroof cassette because 1) it wasn't/still isn't sagging, and 2) cuz I couldn't figure out how to remove the damn thing.

Hmm, yea to be honest I'm not super crazy about the alcantara / suede look. I'd prefer to match the existing material as close as possible so I don't have to recover all the pillars too.

Plus doesn't the texture drive you crazy? I would be brushing that shit every time I got in the car lol.

Its on my to-do list as I need to put a headliner in my M3 as well. Will check the samples and give them a call this week.
did you guys end up ordering some now that we are in October? I plan to order some but not sure how many yards

I have it throughout (including the sunroof cassette). It is not as bad as one would think and the pics kind of distort how it looks IRL.

As far as my suggestion on if this is either a DIY, bring the whole car down, or just drop the parts off - kind of job. I chose to drop the parts off and have the pros do the repair. Not that it takes a rocket scientist, but I figured the chances that I didn't drive myself mad AND/OR the job wouldn't last as long was worth just having someone else do it for me.

FWIW September 3rd to now, October 16th, have done ****all about the situation. My headliner is hanging worse than ever.

I care, but, only so much. I'll probably tackle this before the end of the year... ISH.

I kind of forgot about it - when you don't drive the car I guess you don't notice the headliner sagging

Ill reach out tomorrow and see if its back in stock. They sent me a few samples, only one matched: "BM3109" or "BM3104", cant tell as its written in pen by hand but here I see BM134 mentioned. Either way Ill find out and report back.
