    Fitted S3 Pedals To My A3!

    I LOVE THEM! They make transform that area so much. Feels and looks superb. MB was brilliant keeping me up-to-date all the time and they came when he said they would.

    Took me around 30mins to do with 3 cuts on my fingers, with blood! Lol. Ficious it was lol.

    Well here's some pics with abit of narration...

    Heres the box...


    Heres the pedals in the bare. Mmmm lush


    Got underway and took off the clutch + brake pedal pads. Took couple of mins. First cut was then lol


    Right got that out the way. Now to get down to business!


    As you've no doubt seen, i've got some tools at the ready, of course, didn't user ANY of them lol. Wrongs tools Then got these...


    Finally got it out after a few sprays of WD40, it just wouldn't budge! 2nd and 3rd cut was then lol


    The end product! (gonna get new black carpet mats heh)






    Many thanks to MB for the pedals, definitely give him a shout for em'!

    Yay my first mod lol!

    lol there were times when I thought I wouldn't be able to do it lol. The bloody screw behind the cap is a nightmare lol. Glad I finally got it out after putting an extension to an extension heh.

    I'm abit dissapointed though, MB said that with these S3 pedals i'd see a 30-50bhp performance increase just like on eBay! WHAT HAPPENED

    Unhappy

    Ok I've ordered the set of pedals and I'm having a nightmare trying to install them. The problem is removing the lead from the acc pedal. According to the instruction you just press the clip and the connector releases.

    Well I pressed the clip so hard that I've broken it and no matter how hard I try I cannot pull the clip off.

    What am I doing wrong??

    Yea I had that too, my fingers got really sore! Get a flat head screw drive and use that to push it down. Although it seems like you've pushed the white bit down so far it won't go down anymore, it does!
    It makes a little soft clicking noise and it just slides out once you've pulled the pedal abit.

    Just keep pushing it alllll the way down

    Oh it's just hard to express sarcasm when in writing that's all Robin so sometimes it don't seem like a joke.

    No harm done though Btw, checked out pics of your A3 again, looks sexy! What rims are those?

    I really had my eyes on those but it was exactly that reason I ended up not spec them. What you said sort of re-confirm my assumption.

    I love to have the car clean ALL the time, but it is just impossible to follow up all the time, expecially the kind of road I commute on.

    But when it is clean, what a nice design wheel!!

    I wax my car at least every 2 weeks without fail and everytime i do so i use a cotton bud to clean out each split rim bolt, yes it may be a utter ***** and crap job but its well worth it in the end.

    If i were to spec wheels then i would go for the same wheels without a doubt, although in the winter the standard 5 arm ones look like a much better option!

    Thanks emzino
    Well that was so easy once you know what your doing. No brute strength is required, just follow the instructions wiggle the pedal and the cable releases all by its self.
