If you put an emblem fasten either the top or bottom half, DO NOT attach both!!!! As that center crease is the tear point for the air bag, a dual attachment will most likely turn your "L" logo into a projectile aimed at your face/upper torso. As a paramedic I've seen many car accidents were the only injries resulted from the air bag impacting the drivers face. Saftey concerns aside the "L" looks good there.
When Lexus launched fifteen years ago the idea of a Japanese luxury brand that would compete fender to fender with Mercedes-Benz BMW and Cadillac seemed preposterous. But Lexus’ first sedan shocked the world. The result of hundreds of prototypes the work of more than 1000 engineers and some $1 billion the Lexus LS400 pioneered new ground. In the words of one auto expert “Lexus had reinvented the luxury car.”

Now when I do get it...how do I attach it?
Any ideas are appreciated!
Any adhesive will do I suppose. Just make sure to use a nice tiny applicator so you don't get too much on there and end up spreading it when you apply some force to the emblem.. I've been looking at a steering wheel emblem on ebay for over a month now.. its just too damn expensive.. Over $170. This is a ridiculously cheaper alternative..
Time for me to buy one of those books..
What I'll end up doing is masking the bottom half of the L with tape, apply adhesive to the top portion and then stick it on with medium pressure. Turn the heat on high and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then turn the car off and let it cure overnight. I'm personally gonna use some 3m spray adhesive. Works pretty good on metal to fabric.
It was in a later thread but it's highly advised to NOT do this mod. The airbag seam is right there which is why lexus didn't put an emblem on the wheel and molded it in. If the bag is triggered you're going to be taking that emblem in the face at a high rate of speed.
