    Searched, but couldn't find any info about this:

    The felt headliner of my hardtop is starting to separate and sag on both sides close to where it meets the windows. Anyone else had this problem before? Is there an easy fix?

    We had this problem on our CPO Sig#40.

    We are still under warranty, so we just brought it into the service center and they fixed it. They had to outsource it to someone who does interiors, but it was taken care of.

    Yes, it happened to my roof a couple of years ago. Took it to an auto interiors place for repair.

    Yes a local car trim shop should be able to handle. Mine separated under warranty but the local shop did a great job.

    My headliner is pulling away in 2 areas. Any recommendations for an auto interior/trim shop in the Washington, DC area?

    One alternative I have used in the past is to remove the old headliner and just use a black spray on truck bedliner. The look is very similar, and it will literally last forever. It is slightly louder when it rains, but not much. I personally didn't notice a difference in the temp due to the loss of insulation either.

    I just used Lim's Custom Top & Upholstery to reupholster my DEET - ruined seat; they did a very nice job. Since it's in their name, I'm sure they can help with your top. They were recommended to me by Michael, the Service Advisor at Tyco Tesla. Plus they're conveniently across the street from the SC, at 8455-I Tyco Road. Best of luck!

    Just to let those know who might have a damaged seat covering, there's a seller on ebay who is selling two of them in the black and dark brown combination is seems. $200 obo a piece. From the looks of it they might be the original from Tesla.

    One issue I see is in the pic below the left one has a fold / crease in the leather which may not come out. However there's two sets so there may be one that's perfect as a set:
