Endo - nice I like the look of those These are BMW originals and can be found on e-bay? If so that's great cause the dealer generally wants a fortune for this kind of stuff.

I doubt it is original from BMW. All it says is Mtech pedals. Yes, I found them on ebay and the seller is from the UK. Bids start around US$ 34 for these. I have seen a couple of them ended with 0 bids. Still waiting for itofigari to confirm its quality.

Hey itofigari, I just notice some problems the picture of the pedals you originally posted. Look at the CF wave of the clutch pedals and the other two, it's not symmetrical to one another. The one on the outer most left is a lil different.

I hope not every set of pedals are similar to the one in the picture.

Anyway, how's the GP thunder working out for you? I have 8500k and I think it's not bright at all. in fact, much dimmer than the OEM ones. but still, it's freaking cheap!

...I actually tried to drive around tonight with the GP Thunders 8500 ONLY....as Borat would say....these lights are bright, NOT.
They DO look AMAZING though, don't you agree? The car looks very aggresive in the morning and early afternoon. I think they are cool lights when driving at night through well lit streets, like a downtown are or something...
Cant wait to get my pedals...

Yep, better than the OEM amber. For a temporary switch, $15 is totally worth it. Cant wait till the vendors release new light kit for E9x M3.

Hello all,
I JUST got the pedals in the mail...now I need to install them. I am thinking of taking them to the dealer to have them professionally installed...unless someone has a guide I can see and do it myself? As far as the quality, they look good , although the "M" logo is a sticker and kinda looks a bit faded? I am pretty sure they are NOT made by M technik, BMW's version of AMG...anyhow, as soon as I put them, I will let all know. If they do not work out, I will put the pedals offered by BMW Performance

Those aluminum ones are ACS rip off's. DEFINITELY not a M pedal. I've never seen a Motorsport pedal.

Install is pretty easy, but the brake pedal is a bitch to drill through. You definitely want to get some titanium dill bits.
