Default Pedal Pads

I bought a set of M pads couple months ago but now thinks all that M logo looks silly... and, I don't feel like drilling the pedals; so, I am thinking to just getting the OEM rubber ones. I did notice that my clutch foot tends to slip if I am not being careful driving while wearing dress shoes. However, that's on worn pad rubber...still, I would like to hear from those who have placed new OEM rubber clutch pad...anyone experienced slipping?

+1; I did mine a few years ago and drive 100 miles periodically to a client site in dress shoes with no issues.

Default Re: Pedal Pads

For what it's worth I ordered the OEM aluminum pedal plates to install but I haven't bothered yet for the same reason (drilling holes to mount them). I still like the idea of them but have no clue what to expect installing them and what they are like to use. I'm hoping that heel toe downshifts will be easier.

They are not nice and even worse for grip. I do not understand these one bit.

Default Re: Pedal Pads

I disagree.

I've had them on since 2003 and they're excellent for both grip and "heel"/toe action.

Mine came with 'silicone like' inserts - they're stickier than I'd expect rubber to be but harder than I'd expect silicone to be - I don't know what it is.

They're also too wide to slip off easily. Far, far better than the tiny stock pedal covers.

Mine are still reps of the ACS ones but they're a good facsimile - quality may have changed since?

Default Re: Pedal Pads

For me, the having to drill the pedals was a turn off, plus seeing the //M logo, first it was cutie. After a while, the bling and novelty factors disappear and the pedals look cheap. I agree that some ($^) are more beneficial over stock...I am finding some "no drill" ones I might eventually try.

Default Re: Pedal Pads

Fair enough and each to their own.

Drilling the pedals is trivial to be honest and the stock pads cover any hole you make if you need to go back. The ///M logos are (IMHO) quite fitting - new BMW's have ///M plastered everywhere they can so in comparison a few more, that are typically covered, don't make a difference to me.

But ultimately these are function over form, fit perfectly and work really, really well - I couldn't go without them now.
