Those aluminum one's look cool, but they will be VERY slippery when wet. It's actually dangerous.

This may ring true for that pedal pad set, but does not hold true for ALL all aluminum pedal pad sets...that's all I will say...

I only prefer a pedal set that has some rubber component in it, otherwise it would be slippery under some conditions!

Ok, so I bought these pedals from UK Ebay Seller Ian5718. Ended up paying around $60 for them. When they arrived I initially wasn't very impressed with the quality. They are aluminum pedals with a layer of CF covering them. The ///M label is a sticker. I actually decided not to install them but after looking at them for a few days they started to grow on me. Ended up ordering a set of Ultimate Pedals but in the mean time finally decided to install them a few days ago and I gotta say that I'm actually impressed with the look and quality. The CF looks really trick, the rubber inserts give them excellent grip and they also came with all the installation nuts and bolts. Although I didn't use the nuts and bolts for the gas pedal since I couldn't access the back of the gas pedal to thread on the bolts. Ended up using some black screws I had in my toolbox which did the trick. The install was pretty straight forward. The only thing that's a pain in the ass is the brake pedal because it's steel and a bitch to drill through. Luckily I had a DeWalt concrete drill that went through it pretty quickly. Kinda scuffed up the brake pedal a bit during the install but nothing major. I can't even imagine how long it would've taken me if I would've used a regular drill. All-in-all I'm very happy with the pedals. Let's see how long they hold up. If they end up breaking or falling apart I can always change them out for the Ultimate pedals when they arrive. Enjoy the pics!

I think these pedals are a bit to much bling, to busy. I like the BMW matte alum with rubber cross cut inserts, not to much over the top.
