320is steering wheel horn buttons?

I have a bmw steering wheel which I believe is from a 320is. I got it off of ebay a while ago and just dug it out of storage.

The weird part is I have two very different horn buttons for it. The rubberized button part of the assembly is different. One horn button I picked up out of one of my friends spare parts bins. It is definitely thicker when installed...I believe that it is made for a 320is wheel with the plastic cover over the 3 metal spokes. Like the picture on the bay area 2002 page.

I have another button, which is a lower profile. It however is missing the center plastic roundel. The roundel is a smaller diameter than the other button.

The plastic assembly of the horn button (the actual assembly which has the spring and contacts) are the same between the two buttons.

I personally like the lower profile horn button, but I need to find a center roundel for the button. Anyone know of a vendor that I can contact that would know the right bmw part #? I'd like to use this wheel and need to find a roundel before getting it recovered.

Anyone know if the 320is wheel ever came without the plastic spoke covers? Did they change over during the production run?

Thanks,

Bernard

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
