$385??? Oh no, I can't afford that, is there no way to do a temporary spot repair? It doesn't need to look perfect, but I'd like to enjoy FL's winter weather while it lasts with the windows down...
The longer you let it go with temp fixes, the further it spreads, especially with the windows down. You'll want to just pull it all down, which doesn't take much to do, or you'll want to fix it asap.

By the way, my sunroof shade just dropped on me too, so this is round 2 of roof cloth issues with this car.

just did mine. $200 I removed headliner and sunroof shade. Material is pretty much the same. its the HUMIDITY!!! since the headliner being fixed I always make sure I leave the circulation a/c on to avoid the humidity entering the car as much.

Mine started sagging around the sun visors a year or two ago. It's also a car that's spent most of it's life in humid environments. When it starts to annoy me I was going to hit up an auto fabric shop, I like the alcantara idea.

You can DIY for about $60 but it's still a PITA.

Mine just went from "meh, I can live with it" to "dammit, now this has to be fixed...." It started separating from around the map light cluster.

I'm going to pay someone to do it. Fiddling with a bunch of crappy plastic clips is not my idea of a relaxing day off.

My door cards are now going. I almost want to swap over to a full leather interior.

I don't suppose anybody knows where to find the MkVI plaid pattern fabric? Because having that on the door cards might look pretty cool (or it could look atrocious, I'm not good at imagining these things).

I found the plaid material on a website, but it's expensive. Costs an arm and a leg, I'm sure you can Google it.

My headliner is sagging around both the driver and passenger sun visors. Took it into the dealer with 5 days left on my warranty and they're replacing the whole headliner no questions asked.

Temp fix for those that want one.

I don't have the funds to get this fixed but it makes your car look like cheap trash. Have been running this setup for 3ish weeks. Can go windows down and everything. Looks way better than it sagging down around that light. This did look as bad as any of the other pics I have seen. Huge eyesore.

I used the aluminum piece on the neck of a bottle of Jameson. I imagine any sturdy aluminum will do. Cut little teeth on one side and and cut slits in the headliner to put the teeth through. Was pretty easy.

Also, be careful removing that light cover. The clips holding it in are made out of the most brittle plastic ever.

I have it too, trust me, it really pisses me off. For a car thats only 6 years old, this shouldnt be happening. That sad part is everything else in the interior is perfect (to me).

stop having so much sex in your cars and building up all that steam to melt the headliner glue

This is the first time ive ever seen the sagging headliner in a mk6 it was notorious for mk4s

My headliner on my 2013 is starting to droop around the sun visor. My car has been garaged since new at home and at work. Really should not happen on such a new car and another strike of many against VW quality with this car.

EDIT: Added a picture to show where the sag/droop is starting around the visor area. Same thing happened to my '07 GTI and started at the same location and got worse fast.
