BMW OEM Stainless Steel Pedal Kit

I posted this question in another thread concerning pedal options, but it got lost among all the other pedal options. Figured I would start a new thread.



Can someone tell me which of these fit a DCT equipped M3?

35000410099 - Manual
35000410100 - Auto

Does the auto kit come with the exact same gas and brake pedals as the manual kit? If so, I might as well get the manual kit just to have an extra brake pedal (as long as the clutch pedal fits over the brake pedal).

If you have a picture of these pedals installed on your DCT M3, please share.

Thanks!

I purchased the manual set for my M3 w/ DCT. Basically, you just wind up w/ an extra pedal. Easy install. Brake just slips on. One screw for gas pedal.

I believe the auto kit comes with the larger brake pedal, like in regular Steptronic automatic BMWs. So, as NKYBimmer said, the manual set is the one to get.

...So I go to purchase a set of these pedals from a parts dealer and I tell him I have a M-DCT car, but I need the MANUAL pedal set.

The dealer tells me that the M-DCT equipped cars call for the AUTO pedal set and states the accelerator pedal is different????

I would not think the accelerator pedal is different and doesn't the AUTO pedal set come with the larger brake pedal cover, so that would not fit the small brake pedal on the DCT equipped car right?

He's wrong. I purchased the manual set online from Tischer. Everything fits fine. Accelerator is EXACTLY the same.

+1, you need the manual set, don't let the dealer tell you otherwise. Better yet, order from Tischer and save a few bucks

Thanks guys!

I purchased from a BMW dealer selling the pedals on eBay (hunterdonbmw) for $104, so I got a good price. I'll make sure he sends me the manual set.

Well the dealer did some checking and he agrees that Manual kit will fit (DTC and manual cars both have the same size brake pedal), but he still states that the accelerator pedal is different.

The DTC car has a different accelerator part number than a manual car. He spoke with a technician who said the rheostat inside the accelerator pedal is different.

rheostat - A continuously variable electrical resistor used to regulate current.

Obviously some of you guys have already done this, but its possible the different rheostat is sending the ECU the wrong voltage.

Example - 90% throttle when it should be 100%

Thoughts???

Do these fit the M3? On their website you can select pedals for 3-series '06+, but not the M. These look

They're covers, if you haven't received them by now. No effect over the functioning of the pedal.

Edit: Except if your foot slips off the non-rubber part of it.

The accelerator pedal is not a cover. It's a complete replacement that plugs up to a OEM connector. See the below link for pictures of the pedal assembly and connector.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61107

Obviously the OEM connector will plug up to the new pedal assembly and function, but with the possibility of the rheostat being different I have decided not purchase the pedals at this time.

You have to buy manual version as brake pedal fits. But if you install accelerator of manual version on your DCT, you'll loose kick-down function. Instead, I used cover of accellerator. It's easy to replace it.

It makes sense that the accelerator for the DCT would be different from the manual for that kick down function.

So you're telling us that you are able to remove the cover from the stainless steel kit and just slap it on the stock one?

Yes. There's a plastic clip between cover and module. Simply unclip it.

Someone in another thread had reported that DCT cars were now coming with the steptronic sized brake pedal. Can anyone confirm regarding '10 and '11 models? thanks.

Need Help

I'm really confused now...My 2011 M3 conv is on its way, and I really want the stainless steel pedals on my car, but I don't want to screw around with replacing the original accelerator. Can some one show how to replace the accelerator pad without changing the electronic module with photos? I can't visualize how that would be possible.

Thank You

These pedals are not compatible with 2010+ M3s. They worked with earlier model years but something has changed so that they don't work anymore according to Tischer.

I could have sworn I have the manual set and the kick down feature works. I have never tested if Launch Control works though.
