So I found these pedals on e-bay last week and I thought I would purchase them since they were so cheap (so cheap I'm embarrassed to post it here). I thought if they weren't what they were advertised to be, I would just leave some negative feedback and be done with it. After I ordered it, I noticed the stark resemblance to the AC Schnitzer pedals Beastpower has on his website. I'm wondering if there is any copyright infringement going on. Anyway, I got them installed yesterday and it's a WONDERFUL upgrade... really eye-catching for the driver, and almost looks stock! If you're wondering, I got them from an e-bay retailer called xr_team. I also got some nice ///M tire valve caps for $5.00. The catch with these guys is that shipping is ridiculous, but the cost of the parts makes it all worthwhile.

I have the schnitzer ones in the M3. definately a copyriight violation but.. I ended up getting some pedals, dead pedal, ebrake, floor mats, and seat belt pads off ebay for about $120 total. Quality was good on all of it...

Beautiful :cheers:



You should be embarrassed when paying too much, not when getting a great deal!

Yes, but the gas pedal you installed does not reach the top of the stock pedal, correct? (i.e. it's not the same length)

True. I saw that on Beastpower's site.. the 2001+ 5 series (except M5's) have shorter accelerator pedals. It's about an inch shorter. For what it's worth, I still think it's a ridiculously good set.

I have the same pedals on my 5 but I only have the brake and clutch pedals installed. I found that the gas pedal was not only shorter but practically impossible to install on the plastic gas pedal (the back is a waffle-like grid and the frond is an uneven wavy grip). If you have any installation tips please advise! I am perfectly happy with the brake and clutch only. Do you have any regrets with the shorter gas pedal???

All,

I installed the BMW E46 Aluminum Pedals on my M5... This kit came with a plastic pedal for the E46. Slightly different size but works fine on my E39. I attached the BMW Alum pedals to the BMW provided gas pedal and slapped it and it works great...

I remeber no issue with the stock E39 pedal other than height... Just drill holes though the plastic pedal and use the provided screws...

That's what I did as well, but I used separate screws that were slightly longer.

I have a set with the ACS logo sitting my garage. After taking it out to find out that the gas pedal was too short for the M5 I decided not to install it. Anyone know where I can find one of these replica pedals that will fit the M5 gas pedal properly?

That accelerator pedal does look like the shorter version which is doing the rounds on eBay.

I did buy a complete set off eBay - but found that the because the pedal was shorter - I wanted to hang out for the E39 one, couldn't find it anywhere on ebay and ended up buying the porper E39 set from Beastpower - just because I wanted to the keep the whole car schnitzer'd.

Looking at your one - I guess I could have got away with the ebay set - they look fine.
