Here you go for sharing in case you dont have this mod yet.

Upgrade your boring stock pedals to M "racing" pedals.

These are made in China but they are made of high quality aluminum and high quality rubber.
I did this mod on my 2006 M6. Now the same thing for my 2009 Cabrio.

Great upgrade for $50.00, very easy install. Takes about half hour tops. Comes complete with installation hardware.
Installation tips: For the gas pedal - no need to use the nuts and bolts. Just use self tapping aluminum screws.

Use center punch first, then drill your holes and install. Very easy.

I bought mine from this seller (I have no affiliation).

Dan,
I did the same. Had them on the 2006 and ordered them for the 2010. Great advice on the gas pedal. I actually removed mine to install, but the nut and bolt still don't work on the bottom of the gas pedal.

Awesome Dan :cheers: I'm browsing Ebay at the moment Lol. These just mount over the existing pedals right?

nick,
no you have to remove the rubber from the brake and drill holes through the metal pedal. for the dead pedal you peal off the existing aluminum and then use the supplied screws. for the accel. pedal do what dan said.

Yes, those little nuts and bolts are extremely hard to install on the gas pedal so I didnt even try.
Just use self tapping screws with a head that will fit flush with the pedal.

Self tapping screws for the gas pedal works great. Its not going anywhere as they are on there tight.

Sattman is correct:

Dead pedal: Either remove the aluminum trim or leave it on. Drill pilot holes then install the self tapping screws.

Brake pedal. Remove the OE rubber pad. Mount the racing pedals over it, center it, use center punch so that drill bit wont wander around during the initial drilling process.

Gas Pedal: No need to touch anything, just use self tapping screws instead of the nuts and bolts provided.

Note: Make sure the screws are hand tight. DO NOT overtighten as you risk stripping the screw threads.

dan,
that center punch is a great tip. The metal is tough and having a center punch would have helped alot. I wish i thought of that when i installed mine.

Dan,

It looks like you had a productive weekend. These pedals are great looking and reasonably priced. Mine are a couple of years old and are standing the test of time. I still feel the added 5 HP that they add. :M5launch::M5launch::M5launch:
