    I can;t understand the safety issue as both the RS4 and RS6 have them and my old R32 had one fitted... Not saying your wrong but I would question that explanation!

    Just wanted to post a further bit of info to anyone fitting the alu pedals, having just finished putting them on myself.

    I had more problems getting the connector detached from the old accelerator pedal than anything else. I don't think I've read anywhere else that you have to press the grey button down quite hard so that you hear a click and it stays pressed down. Then the connector should slide off quite easily. The grey button will stay in its 'clicked down' position until you insert it all the way into the new pedal where it will pop up again.

    Hope that helps.
