Aftermarket Pedals Advise Please

I like the looks of many types of after market pedals but am concerned that they may add too much grip for daily driving.

Does anyone have advise and/or experience with different types?

Here is a picture of the ones I was thinking of ordering.

Get the BMW pedals. They work and look great. Those look awful. Are you 16?!

Get BMW performance. Day to day driving is perfect (not too much grip at all), but are definitely easier to rev-match if you have a MT.

I have 3D Design and love them... not overly grippy for day to day and the best looking pedals in my opinion.

If you heel/toe there is a great set at turner motorsport that have grippy brake and clutch pedals and a smooth accelerator pedal: part# tms-3-pedal-set. Functional AND good looking

I'm having some custom made through ultimate pedals as we speak. They work with you to create any unique design you like.

The ac schnitzer reps on eBay aren't bad either in aluminum. Either that or oem BMW look best IMO.

I went with OEM. The 3D Design is great looking as well.

I bought the black Schnitzer fakes off eBay and couldnt be happier. They look solid and I would't think of paying several times more for something with a reputable name attached to it. Its a pedal for crying out loud.

ECS Tuning. Just dont ask them for more screws when they get stripped going into the metal OEM pedals.

OP - Here is a shot of my set-up. I find them comfortable and fairly subtle in appearance in real life. No regrets.
