There's gotta be another place to buy new door panels besides the BMW dealership. Mine are completely falling apart. The glue holding the vinyl is completely gone and the two screws on either side of the door handle are the only things holding them on. Where else can I get a pair of panels (for a tan leather 2d coupe) for less than $250 each?
Also, how much does it normally cost to get a headliner replaced? What are some good places?
Thanks a lot.

People have 'em, I was going to replace mine earlier but I called around and couldn't find a good price. There's small parts sites online, with dirty-sounding men that call you saying 'yeah.. i got the part'. Kinda creepy, but the price wasn't right. So I drove over to Home Depot and got some Gorilla Glue for the plastic attachments on the inside, and some contact cement for the material (wasn't as strong as I thought it would be.. I'd suggest using gorilla glue for that too) and some clips on ebay:
Theres a few auctions for 'em. That's the DIY option, but there are places around that have used, but decent doors. For a brand new panel though.. I think you're shit out of luck if you're not going to the dealer. Sorry.
