    So we know a lot of the interior parts are Z4 carryovers. I wasn’t super crazy about the steering wheel wanted to add a little something. I have had several Lexus F series models which always have an F logo in the bottom of wheel. I had this made for the GR. Thoughts? It’s the first attempt but turned out pretty slick. I’m thinking of doing something in carbon fiber or even numbered to correspond to the LE number.

    Input appreciated. Thanks

    Just sticking it on looks kind of tacky. If you go to the cosmetic thread someone has custom wheel there.

    I think it looks much better than just the stock wheel and I’m sure much much cheaper than a new steering wheel all though that wheel in the other thread is amazing. Plus if you grow tired of it you can just take it off.

    Yeah someone sent me a link on IG for a custom carbon fiber wheel. I don’t want to pull the brand new wheel etc. I have done that before and damaged the clock spring on removal. Costly item. Lol.

    make the sticker/decal fit that entire blank space and it will look far better. or get someone to make a small carbon insert with a spot for the sticker.

    no reason to get an entirely different wheel if you dont want to.

    @A70TTR you understand the fundamentals of Design! Form follows Function! I totally agree that sticking on the GR Logo is extremely tacky. Regarding what you said; "get someone to make a small carbon insert with a spot for the sticker" I agree with you 100%! I have mocked up a design for OP to have a better idea!

    That looks great IMO (would match the rest of the CF trim too)
