    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...

    Thanks B, you should definitely get a set! The pictures do it no justice at all :)

    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 :moa:

    Maybe the hefty pedels cancel out the extra bhp? :tocktock:

    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!! :icon_thumright:

    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 bitch and **** 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.
