Sneak preview of an awesome clutch component we are currently testing

…a must for all modern “Sporty-Driven” (manual) BMWs.


The “Ultimate Clutch Pedal” is a short-throw clutch pedal made of billet aluminum and 6061 aluminum tube.

It fits all LHD manual BMW 3-series cars 2007 and up. Includes (E90/92 and up including F-models) along with all manual 1-series cars and X1 chassis.

“Slop” is completely eliminated by the use of precision maintenance-free bronze bushings and stiff billet CNC-design pivot block.

Feel is greatly increased due to the elimination of all plastic and flex in the pedal system.

The slightly shorter throw makes for quicker shifting and a more positive feel.

Lower pedal resting location (15mm lower) lines up pedal better when braking and requires less “leg-lift” from the dead-pedal.

The over-center spring is user adjustable with 3 settings (Stock - Sport - Race).

Includes adjustable clutch stop that allows user to fine-tune the pedal travel distance and carpet clearance.

Satin tumbled surface is then finished in anodized black.

Pedal pad shape is compatible with OEM rubber or any after-market pedal pad kit.

Easy end-user installation requires no alterations to the car and no special tools.

Race-proven performance – positive feedback… Tested by amateur and professional racers.

Sport street can also find the stock clutch pedal's shortcomings. The "slop" removal, the shorter throw and the lower position of the pedal should be welcomed by most.

Happy to see companies still developing parts for the manual driving experience. Definitely interested. Curious as to the bottom position with this pedal. I found the stock clutch pedal to be on the low side when fully depressed. I have put a thicker bumpstop on already but would be great if this pedal will improve that even further.

Yes, it will. This kit will also come with a new adjustable clutch stop as well.

Any development on a SSK that really works and isn't a fortune?

Plastic oem pedal vs what appears to be a full fabbed aluminum replacement? Plastic bushings stock vs brass too it seems. I've never found pedal height to be an issue stock but I'm sure the fabbed replacement part feels more direct. That being said, it's still a hydraulic clutch so there is no mechanical attachment to the clutch itself. Can the clutch engagement and disengagement really feel that much better?

I need the reassurance that I can use the pedal to jack up the car, should I ever reconfigure the hydraulic lines

I have made similar modifications on past BMWs with great payout. This purchase is a no-brainer for me.

I think that may be possible if you mount a few hydraulic cylinders on the car and run lines to them from the clutch master cylinder.

Reminds me of the Mason Engineering pedal for the E46, it was amazing. Looking forward to this as well.

But I just said I was done modding for 2013

This looks very interesting, and the price doesn't look too ridiculous either.

Is the sale price of $295 on the website not accurate?

Price is correct.

Shipping date was revised from Oct. 15th to Oct. 28th now, but in two weeks we will get a much better idea on shipping date.

In addition, I have yet to disclosed in full detail about the product and product photos here on the forums. That will come in 2 weeks as well.

This could be a nice complement to my shifter set-up I just finished perfecting. Just when I think i'm done....
