I think you're correct. The Gen4 has a "plain Jane" steering wheel. It's strictly functional. The Toyota logo is simply embossed into the steering wheel cover. Whereas the newer Camry steering wheels appear to have a recessed oval into which the emblem badge fits. In comparison, on a Gen4 the badge would be surface mounted.AFAIK all Gen4 came without no chrome badge.
Agreed. Tacky is definitely not the goal.Hard to say if it would work, but I would think it might look tacky unless you somehow secure the emblem on well.
I would like to put the Toyota logo on my Gen4, but I think it might be too much work to do it.
Any other thoughts?
- Emblem Measure: 47 x 68 mm (2.68"x 1.89")
- Place it over the existing factory steering wheel emblem or replace it.

I wondered if this might be an issue. However, the newer generation models have this exact type of emblem on the steering wheel. See the 3rd photo here.Just remember, if you glue a badge on there it will basically become shrapnel if the airbag ever goes off.
The cover has weak-point lines scored in the back of it, when the airbag deploys it tears the cover along those lines which peel out of the wayHow specifically does the airbag deploy? Does the steering wheel cover pop off before it deploys or does the airbag deploy through the cover?
