anything is possible im sure if you cut it to the exact size, actaully alittle bit smaller, and the right depth you could glue it in there and push it in there tight enough that it owuld actaully look pretty good! but make sure you cut it right or itll look really tacky!

Why don't you just stick the coloured emblem ontop of the non-coloured logo? I don't think hacking up your steering wheel is such a great idea. Personally, I'm not too crazy about glueing things onto any interior part of the car.

i think that would look pretty bad, unless you have some good leather filler

yeah, if you really wanna change it, just buy a new stearing wheel. But it's your car, so do what you want. I personally like the suttle BMW emblem.

well, i was just wondering, b/c i had an extra emblem lying around. it's pretty deep so it can't be glued down. and it has tabs on the side.

NEVER ATTATCH ANYTHING TO THE STEERING WHEEL.

In the event of airbag deployment, that roundel will fly off directly into your face. The only way to safely get a colored wheel emblem is to swap the the wheel.
