I know this is from an old post.....but I never saw anyone post pictures....so here they are installed-<p><IMG SRC="http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c278/hiwinds/S40/s40pedals017.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c278/hiwinds/S40/s40pedals019.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I had a problem with the clutch & brake pedals they sent initally, but within two weeks, I had two new pedals designed completely from scratch on my doorstep. Definately top notch customer service. <p>I don't think you can go wrong for the price. They are very nice. If you notice in the pic, the accelerator has a heel & toe spot built in on the lower left. This makes heel & toe a snap....I just have to roll my foot to the right while I'm braking and it hits that space perfectly....and THIS is the main reason I wanted some new pedals....but hey- looking cool doesn't hurt, right? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

These are the competition series. I was sceptical about the grip without the rubber inserts.....but holy crap- these have more grip than the stock rubber covers if you can believe it.<p>Did I mention the price? $100 for everything including the foot rest....the ones with the inserts and designs are a little more.<p>

The provided screws are self tapping, so they just grab onto the foam. I also added a dab of epoxy on the footrest before attaching it (I did this on all the pedals). I constantly keep my foot there while I'm driving and it seems secure and hasn't moved or come loose........gotta love epoxy <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

i'll prolly order a set tonight then. Did you need to pre tap the pedals for the it to be screwed in?<p><br>Also...wha't the best way to heel-toe again? First time with a manual, so never really tried it, but it's the reason i want new pedals

You can just screw the footrest in though.<p>

Re: Autovation Pedals Installed (hiwinds)

Just a tip for those considering (I got Ultimate pedals from Alan, they are lovely): Get a titanium coated drill bit for the metal brake and clutch pedal plates. A standard black oxide one won't event make a dent. Also, when drilling the holes for the footrest put a piece of tape around the drill bit to guide how deep you go. There is wiring under there so drill as shallow as possible. <p>the Autovation pedals are a great deal, I saw those awhile back. I went with Ultimate since they had more custom options. You'll also notice the shape of the footrest is different, and lacks a flange. I have a GT, so heel-toe is not an issue for me. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>
