Yes, the M3 & 1M trim piece is slightly different from a 135i (M sport). Like you say, where the M logo goes the trim is recessed more and blended in a crease.

I think this is(?) the M3/1M trim piece part: #32307845940
I think I paid around 63 euros for it. The M3 steering wheel ran me about ~370 euros (w/o tax). Then my dealer charged me 20 euros to install the steering wheel!

The trim piece on a 135i is more smooth with just the M logo at the bottom. Like what comes on a 135i with full M sport, seats, alcantera headliner, M sills, steering wheel and shifter.

M3 tri stitched wheel...
