If they don't cover it I'll probably have the headliner and pillars redone with alcantara. Give it an Audi RS-esque look.
The fact that they obviously are aware that this is an issue, or at least a rep is and made that clear, and that they rectified this issue on newer models means they may be responsible for previous models where this is a problem. I would bring that up.
