You can get a steering wheel trim from BMW? I thought that was just some temporary pre-production thing BMW ended up not implimenting.

Please do not post photos of it.

I had to rip that page out of the accessories catalog because I couldn't keep food down.

got the trim (oem) from Booster, but I have not been able to find anything in DIY for any type of trim, I am not sure if it snaps off, or is screwed on from the back somehow

Oh now I remember why that was important. When I have your new M3 delivered with the big red bow on it, I want to be sure it arrives at just the perfect time of day.

Suggestion

Try a BMW parts counter. If you get a friendly guy he may help- or send you to the shop technician who, again might be friendly, and give info. I've be lucky- even had an offer to do my item for me (no charge)!
