    some on here the other day asked can you get an S3 style pedal for the dead pedal....

    basically you cant but i came across a few pictures of the pedals available for the RS4 and it had a matching "dead pedal"

    would anyone know if this would fit the a3?

    Looks way too big. Looks more like some sort of foot warmer

    James kindly fitted the Golf Gti Pedals to my S-Line (prior to my purchase) and I could also do with a matching Dead Pedal. My Dead pedal gets used all the time too.

    Ok I looked into this and got hold of the RS4 dead pedal and it will not fit no way!

    There was a rumour that the RS6 pedal would fit!

    There's no plans for the RHD one as apparently it is a "safety issue"

    This question was burried in a recent post....
    Are you sitting down? I think the poster said they cost £70 each from the dealer. Ouch! You could try vagparts to see if they are cheaper.

    If it's anything like fitting the TT ones you have to buy each unit complete.

    Its probably to stop people buying S3 parts to stick on other models, it will keep all but the hardened tuner away!

    I remember years ago BMW doing this with certain M parts, you have to supply your chassis number so you could order replacement parts.

    my understanding was they were safe in the LHD as they weren't in the same dangerous location relative to the engine. As MB pointed out when we last had this conversation, some of the RHD cars did used to have alu dead pedals, so not sure what has changed since then, but the new S3, TT etc all have the normal one..
