    Just put some raceglaze plastic dressing on the black plastic parts of the accelerator pedal , let that soak in for a few hours then I will put another coat on that should help to keep them looking at there best

    Cheers for the link, that'll save some time searching! Haha, now I need to find myself an S3 manual gear shifter. I've ordered a few things from germany before the post time isn't as bad as you would think.

    All fitted took 10 mins theres a connector block , a 10mm bolt and 2 clips holding the gas pedal on. Looking at the new one makes it easy to get the gas pedal off and the brake and clutch pedal simply pull off.
    Looks really good

    I put these pedals on my car just over a week ago, and they changed the whole appearence of the interior - they look mint! Be careful when your feet are wet though! :)

    Ordered 2x lots, as I ordered DSG ones by mistake originally.... doh!
    They took around 5 days, and then the correct set took 7-10, definately worh the wait with what you save!

    Ordered my set last week and it turned up last night. Getting the existing Accelerator pedal off is a pig but finally did it with some patience, those clips are hard to get off!

    anyway thought i'd post up some pics, excuse the iPhone quality

    yh i found that too, was going to pull the fcuker out but then didnt want to break anything so i took a deep breath and just tried to get that stupid small left clip off. its harder on the left one as the space is so small and no 'normal' screwdriver fits in there. and that damned connector... i swear i nearly broke that thing till i realised i had to push the grey part all the way in!

    yer my connector i used a screw driver to push it in until it clicked....once it clickd the pedal slided off but when i went to put the new pedal on the connector clip wouldnt come back up :scared2:

    i thought the connector snapped from inside so it wouldnt come back up but thankfully i pushed it up with a screwdriver and it went back in place. All happy now though they look ace!
