Tiny Details
« on: January 13, 2018, 10:09:43 AM »
Apparently, some people are upset because their brand new electric car with 200+ mile range and high speed charging has different material for its headliner than they expected. Iím aware cars have headliners, and it is nice when they donít sag, but I donít think I have ever noticed what headliners are made of.

If headliner material is a "controversy" some people need a damn hobby. Or they need to read up on how to NGAF.

Prob a bunch of people with an opinion about a car that they will never buy. That headliner looks similar to the material in other cars we've owned over the years. As long as it stays attached to the ceiling and clean I don't care.

First worlders: Oh no, headliner on electric version is not same as on ICE version.
Many 3rd worlders: Dude, at least you have roads that are drivable. We have fuel shortages. STFU and enjoy your quiet ride.

And then there's me, wondering what a headliner is? I thought that was the main band at the concert. Then per google, it's part of a car. To be more precise, a nonessential part of a car. Sigh.

I do have to admit that my headliner was sagging. I bought a bag of little twisty pins for a dollar or two and just got done pinning it back up. Now I have little plastic pin-heads decorating it. It should be good for many more years!

Do you have a Tesla? Couldn't tell from the OP.
