Pics of installed Kelleners Sport Foot Pedals & Dead

Sorry such crappy pictures. Used the blackberry storm...

I think they look great and they feel great. So much more traction over the stock pedals.

Also vinyl wrapped the ugly chrome trim that comes on the E93. Looks much better now.

Looking good, I worry about having no rubber on the pedals for grip in the wet though?

Good point... I guess we'll see how it goes. I think it should be OK though.

Nice job with the vinyl...it makes so much difference. I'm a stock pedal fan though, especially for the dead pedal.

Your gonna wish you had some rubber on those pedals the first day it is raining and you go to drive your car.

I had a set of all metal pedals on a previous car and until my shoe was completely dry my foot would slip off the clutch pedal some times. I told myself I wouldn't make that mistake again on a street car.

It may be just as easy to add some rubber pieces to the pedals. Not sure how they would hold up but I am thinking something as simple as those rubber mounts you put under furniture.

Nice looking pedals. Like others have said though....be very careful on wet days to not have your foot slip off the break or clutch unexpectedly.

Just one quick install question - do these install over the stock rubber pedal covers, or do you remove the rubber covers and drill holes into the pedals to install these?

Thanks. I drove the other day when it rained and my shoes were wet and I didn't lose any grip....

Yes, I had to take out the rubber pedal covers and drill holes into the pedals.

I did not take out the foot rest, I just put the new foot rest on top. Probably a bad decision but oh well...

If you want pedals that do not require drilling holes, I heard that the BMW performance pedals which are $150 for the manual set not including the dead pedal, are clip ons that go over your stock pedals. I ordered a set but it was taking so long to get I ended up installing these kelleners. I have no patience!

That looks great! I wish Kelleners would make a E9X M3 exhaust. The E39 M5 exhaust they made sounded SICK

Thanks guys! no problems with grip so far and it has rained a few times already...
