OEM roundel replacement on airbag for M sport steering wheel

Does anyone know where I can get an OEM roundel that is on the steering wheel airbag? I have the m sport steering wheel, the car is a F22 m235i. I saw there is a dent on my emblem and would like to replace it.

I don't believe it comes off. Part of the airbag. Would not want a regular roundel flying at my face in an accident.

Thanks for the clarifying that for me. I wonder if a PDR place could have something they could use to take the dent out without causing damage; like trying to lift the roundel.

The PDR use glue sticks to attach and pull. If you have one I would give it a try, just be gentle so you don't tear off the top layer.

Not sure, just noticed it the other day. I have only owned my m235i for about a year and didn't notice until yesterday. I have used two glue sticks yesterday on it and that seems to have helped it back out a bit. I'm going to buy some more and keep trying to pop it out. Then post some pictures of how it looks after.

My vote is: it was road head and she had a hair clip on.

Looks like it states its a sticker for the steering wheel based on their description. I researched it further and it looks like the OEM emblem is fixed on there with metal tabs that go through to the other side of the airbag cover and fold over, so the airbag cover and the emblem or "roundel" are sort of a one piece design. I haven't been able to find a replacement, unless its the entire US equivalent airbag assembly for an F-series that has the m sport steering wheel. Which is way to much to replace for a small dent in my opinion. The good thing is the mini glue gun glue sticks work great to pull it out. Its about 80% better now cant really feel the dent anymore or see it unless your really looking at it close up. I am however going to pick up some more mini glue sticks and try it again, then post some after pictures.

After getting some more mini glue sticks at Lowe's I tried removing the dent again and it's now almost non existent now. The black part of the emblem looks as if there is staining but it's actually a reflection there is no staining or marks on it.
