Pretty close, if not the same exactly.

BM134 on the left, OEM on the right.

Great comparison Haus. Thank you!

Dear god, just pay someone to do it right the first time.

Yes, you can diy, but really, there are some things that are better left to people that know what they are doing.

Sure, why not? I'm getting ready to do the same thing and I won't DIY this. I can drop the car in the morning and I get it back in the afternoon, done. I don't have to worry about breaking clips, ordering fabric, choosing glue, etc. I DIY nearly everything but I know the limits of my talent and patience.

I would not trust this job to a “professional” personally. Recovering the part, yes. Getting the part out and reinstalling, hell no.

DIY the removal and bring the part in if you can.

TBH this is the path I'm considering... I'm not intimidated by removing/installing the parts.

I can't believe people are so scared to touch their own cars! I can't imagine anyone taking better care of my own car than... me! For the best price too!

It is somewhat cumbersome getting this out of the car, especially on a sedan. I would not trust anyone else over myself (especially someone getting paid by the hour) to use the caution and care to get this out without breaking clips. You have to remove the A, B, and C pillars and there are a lot of brittle clips.

Once you have it out you can decide if it is worth it to you to pay someone to recover it.
