it's a light gray and has marks on it, i was thinking i would remove it and refinish it, maybe just spray it black to match everything else, i have the factory sunroof also.

ummm yikes you don't want to do that. you remove that vinyl headliner it won't ever go back in the same........go get some simple green, water it down....then test it on a part of the headliner (small part) where it won't be seen too bad if it takes the color off (generally speaking you should be ok).....tests good, then shoot and gently, very gently scrub till headliner becomes clean again........oh and then fabreeze your carpet to remove the simple green smell in the hoopty

sexually assault a member of the VW community? if you belong to dubdojo or swov.org they will gladly circle their wagons and support you.

I agree with DJProfessor, I found the best thing to do is, if it's not ripped leave it in there, tape everything off and spray it with a spray bomb fabric spray. I've replaced several. If you want to save it you'll have about an hour in just getting it all out without ripping it or breaking your plastic door light brackets, a waste of time.

(plastic door light brackets are the only thing I curse BMW for : )

P.S. I'm going to be selling metal door light brackets soon. B)

anyone have any pics so i know what it would look like if i just removed the headliner ? the car was only a grand so it doesn't need to be perfect. the marks and color are stressing me...if i got it out in one piece i would just spray it black and pop it back in, chances are i'll end up busting it during removal so i wonder how it will look if i have to drive it that way for awhile. the spray i used in the back seat and carpet (duplicolor) worked great ! very nice job.
