Thumbs down

Did you guys drill the clutch pedal to fit the clutch piece on? My ghetto, no name brand, piece for my clutch keeps sliding off, makes me soo mad :{. I'll try to take some pictures later.

I haven't purchased pedals for my BMW yet, but I did purchase crappy pedals for my '02 GTI that kept sliding off...people kept telling me to drill and mount...I saved and bought nice ones and they never hit the ground.

Not sure if you have to drill to install ones on a BMW, but even if you do, I wouldn't do it until I got a nice set I knew I was going to keep.

you mean like these?



Yes, I had to drill 4 holes in each pedal. They are secured from the back by nuts.

Yeah twice ive fitted pedal to cars, but this latest time i had a real hassle because the back of the clutch pedel for some reason stuck out more than normal. Wat you can do mate is use a nut and bolt, it worked for me and then saw of the remainder of the bolt that may hit the floor.

If ur gonna buy pedals get the ones that have more than one selection for the drilled holes so u can screw in ur prefered postion.
