    FIRST MOD DONE!!!

    hi all!!!

    I have just completed my first mod. The s3 pedals arrived this morning (Czech Rep Seller) and i couldnt wait to put them on. At first before the were attached i thought they may not look right but now i think the are the dogs round things. So now my question is this....

    For a newbie with 1 mod under my belt, Whats a good next step???

    Just a query guys - whats the benefit of this mod? Is it cosmetic or are these gripper perhaps? I've got an S3 so not tried the standard A3 pedals but intrigued as to the benefits.

    I found no difference in grip compared to the standard pedals so purely cosmetic

    Its true they are mostly cosmetic, but they do feel better under foot. Especially the throttle.
