Been running the mason pedal since 2007, hands down one of the top 5 mods I have ever done to my car. Feels like an on/off switch

Just installed mine. Pedal definitely sits a bit lower than I expected. Most pictures made it seem like it sits at about the same level as the brake pedal, but itís a fair bit lower. Throw is definitely shorter. Effort doesnít seem notably larger. Pedal vibrations seem to be reduced. Lateral play doesnít really seem that much less than what I had stock - I probably should have gone for the bronze bushings.

Iíll see how I feel about it over the next few days. I think my preference would be something between this and stock.

Edit: Here's a picture of how it looks

@terraphantm I was also surprised by how low the pedal ended up given that most reviews said it was even with the brake pedal. Being able to heel pivot from the dead pedal makes it worth it, though.

If it still bothers you, then you could always take it back out, mount it in a vise, and give it a little more upward bend. I'm thinking about the opposite, though: picking up an extra brake pedal and seeing if I can bend it down a touch to be more in line with the [new] clutch & throttle positions.

So another day, this time with some more spirited driving and some real shoes instead of my dress shoes - I still don't really like it if I'm honest. Resting point is too low, and you have to have your leg embedded in the floor to disengage the clutch. I have to move my seat forward enough that my right leg is no longer really comfortable with the gas/brake. Being able to pivot off the dead pedal is nice I guess, but not really worth the other trade offs IMO.

I think I'll restore it to stock this weekend. Maybe give the Z4 pedal a shot to see if that's any different (has same pedal cluster and brake pedal as E46, so it should be positioned okay). I also noticed Euro and US have a different part number there (and then Euro version was subsequently used on E89 Z4), so maybe I'll even give the euro version a shot.

Do you have a clutch stop? I had to drive around for a day without one and it made this pedal unbearable. Now that I have the stop set right, it's perfect for me.

Just the factory piece. Honestly I don't know if I can really have a clutch stop and still have the clutch disengage - there were a few times where I'm just barely off the floor and I can't get it into/out of gear. My clutch is quite new (like <10k miles) so I wonder if my engagement point is a bit lower.

I run a clutch stop with stock pedal, but no clutch stop with the mason pedal...
