    Arrived home to a joy of a box containing the Alu pedals i ordered from MB!

    Just been outside in the rain to fit them, the brake and clutch took a min or so to do them but the ACC pedal took a little longer, about 10mins as it was a right arse trying to move the clips to remove the pedal, also removing the electrical connector off needed some pulling!!

    But overall done in 15mins and it looks soooooo much better now, i had these on my old Polo and found them pretty slippy when wet so i better be careful on clutch control

    Thanks again MB!!!

    If anyone in the Cheshire area gets some of these and needs a hand fitting them then let me know :).

    Another huuuge thanks to MB here too, paid for the pedals late on friday, delivered to my door at 10:30 this morning and fitted this afternoon! :icon_thumright:

    The acc pedal is a you say Robin, a bit fiddly but brute force and ignorance won the day in the end....

    Cheers again J and i only wish my purchases from supposedly 'professional' online companies went as smoothly as yours mate! :laugh:

    Your welcome fella's!

    Curley, sorry mate yours are on their way from Germany I promise!

    My supplier had the manual ones in stock - he ordered some extras when I placed an order for Simons manual set.

    The brake/clutch pedals are a doddle. The accel pedal is a pain to remove - needs some force to get it off. I prised the cable of with a small screw driver whihc made fitting nice and simple.

    I have a contact who can get them from the factory in german.

    They are cheaper than they do them for as it do it as a favour for the forum, not for profit.

    This has been asked before, and the answer has always been 'No' (unless you have a left hand drive version, in which case, 'Yes'). However, now that the S3 has been released, I reckon that it should now be available. What do you think, MB?
