    Aluminium Pedals Fitted

    As per the title, I got these fitted after a bit of a struggle and a few chaffed fingers but I'm loving how they look :D. I guess they're costly but it adds the finishing touch to the cabin I feel. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of buying them:

    Sorry to say but I think the accelerator pedal is the wrong way around. I've had mine fitted for best part of a year and I'm pretty sure it should be the other way around.

    I know these aren't fitted, but they should look like this...

    ^^ thats why you had a struggle, I'm guessing you got these off eBay? More than likely for a LHD car.

    Have these on S3. Wife likes them but frankly I cannot get excited about something I rarely see.

    I find the footwell LEDs reflect of mine whilst driving along. It's actually quite annoying.

    Yep, I have them, your accelerator pedal is upside-down... it's a struggle to fit either way though!

    I've turned my footwell lights off. I don't need my feet illuminated when I drive!

    They are very handy for when my passenger decides to do a pedicure and cut their toe nails

    Do they feel any better than the standard A3 pedals - either better shaped or more grippy ?

    Little downside to having chrome pedals, when driving off after walking in the rain it can be slippery and i have had moments when my foot had slipped off either the accelerator or brake pedal - can be dangerous.

    The clutch and brake have covers over the pedals. Remove them and the pedals clip over the top. The accelerator simply goes over the top. Just don't put it on upside down... Like some people . They're very hard to get on in my opinion. Try putting a corner on first then the diagonally opposite corner

    Grip wise I haven't tried them in the wet yet. But on previous cars I've not had any trouble. Just wipe your feet on the carpet first...

    Shape wise they're the same as the current pedals

    These are compatible with both RHD & LHD cars

    A tip for getting on is to put them in boiling water to soften the rubber...(I know it sounds extreme but it doesn't damage them) Still a ***** to get on but it helps...

    The brake and clutch are very easy, it's the accelerator that's the PITA to fit. Though I did work out a knack eventually of putting it on diagonally then rotating into place, think I'd be a lot better at it a second time!

    Oh, and I've never had a single problem with my feet slipping off them in the 6+ months I've had the car (fitted these the day I got the car). Soaking wet shoes or not. Either I just know the positions of the pedals well enough to just know where my feet go without having to rely on the pedals themselves to keep them in place, or the rubber bits on them do a good job of gripping them!
