This is a great looking wheel....but I don't like the yellow logo. Anyone have a source for nice Roundel Horn Buttons?

Thanks,

John

I was looking for a horn button myself a few years ago, and was informed that BMW lawyers had nixed after-market roundels. However, if you can find a BMW motorcycle reflector kit, it contains the perfect horn button, albeit intended for a motorcycle. It required removing a tiniy amount of material from the circumference, but otherwise fits perfectly.

Thanks Ian...I may try that if nothing else works. There's a Beemer dealer near me.

The decal for the tii alloy rims is 45mm diameter. I just placed one over my momo button and it looks like I'd need to trim 1mm off the diameter of the decal to fit it on top of the momo button. I think I'll give that a try.

part number 36131181082.

** note, my wheel is not a prototipo, but I'm guessing its the same button size

Please let me know how that works.

I tried, but I think it may have been the last one! Darn! I should have grabbed it...you tried. Much appreciated. There's just no honor among some enthusiasts! :-)

So I trimmed off the outer silver trim on a tii alloy decal cause the decal is ~2mm too large to go directly onto the momo button. I just trimmed it free hand, and (after I took the picture) I figured out that I could fine tune the edge w/ a fine-tooth file, cause the tii allow decal is made of a thick hard plasticy film.

In order to make this look decent, I'm going to get a chrome rattle can, tape off the button, and paint the inner rim of the home made roundel button silver (where the red arrow is in the picture). The proper horn has the correct roundel w/ 2 chrome circles surrounding it, the home made one will only have the outer painted chrome rim.

The tii alloy decal has a dome shape, which is not exactly the same profile as the center of my momo button, so there is a couple mm of space underneath the very center of the tii decal.

In more skilled hands than mine, this might actually look decent. Would this run afoul of the BMW lawyers? Does someone want to start making these assembly line style, and send me a well made one for free because it was my idea?

Nice work......better than nothing. I still fail to see the "logic" by BMW to not allow production of these buttons, as they go onto BMW's afterall.

Dumb ass lawyers ruin it everytime for the masses!

Sorry to vent, but it's just wrong!

    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
