Think I got my cover from jlevisw.

I had the same problem, but I settled with what I had because there is no way I am changing the entire airbag just to make my roundel look pretty. It wasn't even that bad. It was literally a 2 mm ding but the fact that it was there still bothered me.

OK. I found the stick on one at JS Levi. 15 bucks so I ordered the blue and silver carbon fiber one. I just need to make sure that I put it on perfectly straight or else its gonna bother me. Judging by the amount of responses this roundel issue is more than just an isolated problem.

LOL. I was the same way. I musta reseated mine 10-15 times before I was happy with it.

Yes, definite design or manufacturing issue with this part. Mine in my coupe showed quite a lot of wear at 20k or so miles. Dealership refused to replace it as they said the airbag also must be replaced. I'd like to see a photo of a new BMW steering wheel roundel vs. the sticker option. Jlevi??

So I got mine in the mail saturday. Stuck it on and it looks ok. A little bigger than the original. And I opted for the blue/ silver carbon fiber. It is definitely darker than the original and the lettering appears to be skinnier. Overall it is an improvement over what I had, and not bad for 15 bucks plus shipping.
