Hoping to get my done this weekend.

The metal arm for the brake makes the screw point holes difficult, you can't just put them where you want, you need to ensure you can still get the nut on at the back of the pedal and the arm at the back of the pedal dictates to some degree where and how many bolts/nuts can be utilsed.

Way OT, did the 300k round trip last night to pick up my son, it rained almost all the way and pepper is filthy At the car wash now with Salt and Pepper, getting sparkly All is good now, thanks for allowing my digression.

Heel/toe for me is easier, as these pedals are slightly larger than OEM.

I'd check with insurance co re pedals without rubber... I think that pure metals pedals without rubber may be illegal on street cars.

If true, then the BMW factory Msport pedals would be illegal too. Probably not as illegal as a law enforcement detection device

Edit, the Msport ones have rubber inserts in them. IMHO they and standard pedals are very slippery after a Carwash, more so than the all metal ones with raised bits.

Went and purchased a full set of stainless steel chamfered edge screws this morning and replaced the "dodgy" dome head screws that where supplied with kit.

Also fitted extra screws for the clutch/brake for better security.

Really unprofessional and poor form, in my opinion, supplying dome head screws to fit into a chamfered screw recess on the pedals and only supplying 2 screws per pedal, where they are designed for 3..

Now it looks ace..

True... Also depends on your placement of the new pedals as the template provided for fitment is not worth SHIT...

Totally agreed. I just did mine. The template was useless! I did manage to squeeze in 3 screws on the brake pedal though...all these days drilling teeth helps!

I wondered why you where handing out toothbrushes at the meet..

You would think after marketing this product on the ///1M Vendors Forum as a RHD fitment, they would of least friggen tested the template on RHD car for fitment.... Pathetic Vendor marketing IMO.

Just surfing the bimmian.com site looking for some carbon fibre internal bits, and come across my old 135i convertible still being used as a display model for their micro antenna's..
http://www.bimmian.com/Micro-Antenna...r-E88-1-Series

Anyone can recommend a reputable vendor for CF internal bits..
