2015 M235i Convertible top - needs re-dye - any suggestions?

Have a 2015 M235i with a brown top. it is not even now and wanted to get it re-dyed either brown or maybe changed to black. Anyone done this before? Suggestions?

Try cleaning and resealing first. Also this is not in the right section you'll get more responses in 2-series forum. Have asked mods to move.

Garage List
Where I live there are a number of mobile outfits who say that they can do a full soft-top clean +recolour +protection. Typical charge seems to be GB£250-£400, say US$325-500, with the top end for a badly discoloured fabric needing complete re-colouring and re-protection. Caveat is always that the underlying fabric has to be sound and not seriously degraded. So it might be worth Googling to see if you have similar locally. You might find that once you factor-in your own time and materials, the extra you pay to have it done for you is reasonable. I took a quick look at some of my local detailers and they have some impressive soft-top restorations and recolourings in their galleries.

That AZ sun gets you every time. What part of AZ are you in?

If you find anything, let me know. I'm in Chandler and have a similar issue with my top. Needs some care.
