X3 roundel replacement. Please Help!

I drive a 2009 X3 and I have significant damage on my steering wheel's roundel ( It's dented inwards). Is there any way I can easily change and replace just the roundel?

Thanks!

I thought the cover is separate of the airbag? The airbag module is just a small rectangular shaped object behind that cover. My guess is you could get just the cover somewhere...no?

EDIT: If the wheel on the 09 X3 is the same as on the previous years, then the cover is separate and costs $95 at Tischer. Alternatively, you may be able to figure out how to remove the cover yourself and try to "unbend" the roundel or try to get a left over cover from a vehicle that was in a wreck...
