    just one question about the steering wheel badge. Is it safe?. I used to work in a factory that built airbags called TRW and they did a demo of what it would be like if there was an object to fall into the airbag un-noticed. Basically it was like shooting a magnum at point blank range as they used a bolt from the airbag assembly. Now i'm not saying it is unsafe but,,,,what if you have a crash and that badge got shot at you at a very fast rate and decided to lodge itself into your head....just a thought.

    then i'd match my motor haha

    no seriously though, the badge is stuck in same position as original, also th airbag deploys out of the larger circle you can see on wheel, so that whole 'panel' would drop away once airbag deploys, i have seen a similar disscussion on the subject before
