Looking to replace my foot pedals on my car. Are these pedals knock offs or authentics from ebay. The prices make me wonder. In any case I don't care if they are knock offs but I want to know for sure. Has anyone bought the AC or MT pedals off of ebay before? Thanks

What pads? It depends on the auction. Often it will say if they are a replica or "AC Schnitzer Style or Original. Also check the seller's feedback, i dont like to deal with anybody with recent negatives or anyone under 99%. (hopefully 99.5%+)

thanks for the help. AC Schnitzer is what I am looking at on ebay. Around $70.00, plus shipping is another 12-15 dollars. I know brand new from online stores can cost at least twice that amount. That makes me a little skeptical. I don't care if they are replicas but I don't want them to break in a year from now!

I wouldnt worry about them braking, id worry more about the finish or the inserts falling out. You might have a better chance at getting the real thing if you look for some m-tech (m3) pedals.

Yes those are fake. Most of the pedal sets ebay are knockoffs. Like 1634 said, they won't break, they just don't have the fit and finish of the authentic stuff.

read this auction closely, these are replicas:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33700

these dont say they are replicas, so i would email the seller to ask.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33700

remember, 99% feedback and above, hopefully they dont even have any negatives in the last 6 months.

remember, most of the will probably be knock-offs; and with pedals finish should be very important to you since they will have constant wear-and-tear on them.

good luck!
