So... I'm just getting around to removing the stickers/decals from the dealer. Peeled off the break-in warnings, 1200 first service note, etc... Then get around to the bright yellow Air-Bag warning on the dash...
What a feat of engineering crap! I peeled off the sticker only to notice that the dash is coming off with it! The lower dash seems to have a light covering of something that looks like ... like... a film the thickness of a cassette tape - which incidentally tears.
Ok.. so any suggestions on how to repair this fiasco? Yes I know I probably should have left the airbag sticker on... BUT WHO (in their right mind) would have thought that BMW meant for a bright yellow obnoxious sticker to be left on the dash???
PS... I'm thinking I'm starting to like this car - at somewhere around 6-8 grand life gets a little more exciting...
take some pics so we can see what you are talking about

If you look at your bottom picture, there is a silver "band" that runs just above the glove box. While it looks like a solid piece it actually has a very thin cover. It is so thin you can't really tell by feel but the blasted sticker pulled it right up. Unfortunately the color underneath doesn't match the thin tissue color on top. Oh well maybe I'll see if I can get a replacement air bag sticker.
