I like the Brushed style, that is the version that we carry and I have been happy with them on both our E46 and E92.

Ultimate Pedals

match the dead pedal well. I forget the finish I chose, but it is great. Also, the left side extenstion is a "must" if you want to make heal/toe manuevers easier.

Nice Pic MMM, how was the install? Did you do it yourself? I see you didn't get the rubber grip dimples, any reason why you chose not too? Just wondering.

i prefer no rubber inserts. more refined look. i never lose grip if you have the right shoes. the install was a PITA but worth it in the end. just takes some time and patience

i had the rubber grommets. they come i a bag so you can not install them or remove them. if you wear dress shoes get the grommets. also, then paint the screw heads black.

I am really not a fan of aftermarket pedals. Most of them just attach over the stock pedals and feel cheap.....

If your dealer tries to tell you they don't fit, don't listen to them, because they do... If you have DCT make sure you order the manual transmission set.

I am surprised that they don't give you a big brake pedal w/ DCT like they do with autos. Without the clutch pedal there is certainly room.

Nice Mmm, would like some more pics. So no loss of grip when wet? Nice and shiny now, won't stay that way.

Why would you need a huge brake pedal with DCT?

You can always order the automatic version and get the larger brake pedal. The issue is mounting it would be difficult.
