Headliners?

Like many of you, I'm sick of the OEM white-ish beige-ish headliner we are blessed with by BMW. The obvious answer is to swap it for black M3 headliner(which looks fantastic and is a clean and tidy look I love), but have any of you gone down another path?

Alcantara? Different colors other than black? Quilted? Please post pictures of what you've got, or any ideas you've had.

Gray just doesn't mesh well with black, looks a bit cheap. I'd get the black parts even if the "theme" was black and gray

They still work, you're wrapping your headliner which is like putting a cover over something. I also think that the force of the airbag will still rip through

Uni-suede, the headliner is wayyy to big for alcantara, it would wear out too quick.

I'm pretty sure M sport and 335is models have the black headliner from the M3 from the factory, US too
