    Hi guys, sorry for the random question, but I just noticed that the front edge of the roof upholstery (where it meets the windscreen) is not tucked in, if that makes sense, as it is at the back. It is just cut and frizzy. Is this the norm? Cheers

    I bought mine new in May just gone and the roof lining is dressed neatly up to the windscreen and down the pillars in the same way. Not a vestige of frayed edges anywhere.

    If it's new, then it's quite easy - straight back to the dealer - it just shouldn't be like that, they will have to fix it under warranty.

    Did it have any option extras fitted ? Maybe the dealer that fitted the optional extras caused some damage to the headlining ?

    @maelstrom - this is what mine looks like. Similar to yours?

    IMG_0089.

    I'd never have thought to look there! To me it looks like normal Swindon attention to detail...:Ermm:

    @155695 would be interesting to see a 'photo of yours to compare.

    Yes FirstHonda, something like that, just cut not tucked in. Only noticed by chance. Mine is an SE model, no additional extras fitted.

    I think it's normal @maelstrom

    Some are probably better than others, but as @SpeedyGee says, it isn't somewhere you'd normally look. I wouldn't say that it indicates a thorough approach to quality by the Swindon factory, but what do I know?! I also don't consider it to be much of an issue TBH.

    Certainly can but being a bit thick, I can't work out which bit the photo is of - is it the top of the windscreen behind the mirror?

    Ha ha - yes, top of the windscreen looking at the leading edge of the roof lining - so facing the camera sort of towards the rear corner of the car...if that makes sense?!

    Here are the photos. 18 and 19 are the ones of the lining where it meets the top of the windscreen behind the mirror and 20 is where the lining is dressed down the nearside A pillar . The fact that the lining doesn't look as smooth at the junction in 18 and 19 as it does in 20 is nothing to do with the lining, it is all to do with the camera which was a bit too close to focus properly in those 2 photos. 20 is the more accurate picture and reflects the way all the roof lining is dressed to the edges.

    Hope this helps.

    Keith
