Anyone here with E83 X3 with M Sport Package?

I posted this on E83 forum but it seems it's not as active as here:

I did remove peeling crap from mine and it looks great but I don't like how the big plastic area on bottom of the steering wheel looks empty.
I thought the "M" would break up the surface nicely even though that would make a "poser", lol.

Iím not a fan of over decorating or clutter so I would leave it as is, but I can understand the other point of view.

But, nice job cleaning it up; looks pretty sharp in the minimalist way!

I agree and the point was definitely not to add M badges everywhere, lol.
I actually prefer the Sport steering wheel in older X5 as the one in 06 looks odd to me with the airbag sticking out and then big plastic surface underneath.
Anyway, it looks like I'm leaving it as is.
