E46 Interior E46 330Ci TRIM PANEL A- / B- / C-COLUMN COVERS are falling apart.

I have a 2001 BMW 330ci, the Suede fabric on the interior trim panels are bubbling and has started peeling off the plastic trim panel /column covers. I am curious if this is also happening to your BMW? If you have the same problem, please tell how you deal with it?

I love my bimmer but I think it is also a shame and embarrassing that an expensive car like this that has such low quality interior material. My wife's 10 years old Honda Accord's interior still looking nice, at least the interior wall are all intact and nothing is peeling off. I will post the pictures (my bimmer) of what I am talking about later today.

Below are the pictures:

I've seen this before and it's typically due to what kind of chemicals were used over and over in interior care

Rooz,

I never use any kind of chemicals on the interior for cleaning, just basic vacuuming. Any other people out there experiencing the same problem here? Especially driving the 2000 and up 3 series....

ps:I am having hard time uploading the picture last night, I thought I got it correct but it is still not working. How did you post your picture on the site Rooz?

It looks like the links for the pictures are working now. I am having a lot of difficulties with the site. Anyway... Hope these pictures help supporting what I was telling to everyone.

Again, if you are experiencing the same kind of problem with your bimmer, how do you deal with it? Is this consider a recall from bmw dealership? or what is the quick fix?
