Very common on cars over 6 years old here in Hong Kong where it reaches 40°C in summer and inside the car we'll into  60~70°C temps if parked on the street.

My cousin bought a R32 Japan import with no sunroof & it ain't got the original headlining looks like someone retrim it themselves with felt material. I'm guessing it must be down to weather climate heat inside the car to why they sag

I would bet the non sagging cars are the lighter paint colours.

Also depends of the vehicle life... hot locations on summer kill it... also the door panels on MK5
