I've heard that if you spray them they sometimes flake off after a while

Is there no way of dyeing them or would that be expensive.

Re-trim in the colour you want.

Wouldn't cost much for som faux suede and spray adhesive.

This. Got to do B and A pillar trims etc really to make it all match, takes ages but a LOT cheaper than getting it re-trimmed.

no chance of it flaking off as it soaks into the material, if you scrape it with something though or someone scratches their nails down it it leaves marks, does feel hard tho

i sprayed mine, looks fine.

i don't touch my headlining so i don't notice it's hard.

bit of paint came off but only because i caught something on it, otherwise it's perfect.

Mine has been sprayed for 18months now and I've never had an issue. No flaking at all.

And No, I didn't prime it, just went straight for the matt black.
