New Pedals - What do you think?

Changes to my car always take a while for me to get used to - particularly when they have "rice" potential. What do you guys think? Too rice? Will the function of the wider accelerator make me forget the non-stock look? I suspect they will grow on me, but first reaction is oooh!

They look ok, but not really my style. I like the look of the brake and clutch without their rubber pads. I had thought about drilling them for that look, but never did. I would've liked to get an all metal hinged gas pedal to complete the look, but never found a need. It probably would've weighed more than the stock pedal anyway

The dead pedal is a very good thing.

I'd give them a 6 out of 10.

lOOK pretty good to me.

I have never seen the term "rice" used so many times on this board as I have in the past few days. What's the deal?

Only a 6? Come on! Wait until I double clutch, then it will all be worth it!

I got the mats from a guy that I found on eBay. Also got the matching deck mat - very nice. mbz@usa.com or 323-934-4567.

I vote for the black look too.
I would have them powdercaoted if possible.
Otherwise, they look great.

I have that dead pedal on my SC & love it. I like the looks of the pedals, but I have never found that I need the extra wide gas pedal for heel & toe.

The only thing that matters is whether YOU like them or not.

I used to have billet pedals much like yours but I got rid of them and went back to the stock rubber pads because the billet gets slippery when the soles of your shoes are wet.

I like em. I really like that the brake and clutch have the rubber looking bumps for extra traction.

I also got a set of those mats for my 74 coupe. Very nice quality. Not 100% same shape as stock, but very close.

I like the black rubber nubs. These kinda look like the RUF 996 aluminum pedals. Overall : thumbs up
btw, where did you get them, and if you don't mind, how much $$??

thanks

Funny, I was thinking the same damn thing!

The pedals look good, personally if the pedals were a black aluminum instead of polished, I think it would look better, but thats just MHO.

Seriously, where'd the mats coem from?

What pedals? All I saw in the picture was the beautiful Porsche crest. Don't want to sound like a broken record, but I do have to ask.. Where did you get the matts?

I absolutely hate the rubber pads on stock cars.
And I also hate having to spend $200 for a set of aluminium pedals.
If there is snow or water, my feet always slide off the pedals. I feel more confident with metal pedals with the raised nubs.

If they are funcional there is no risk of rice.
Unless, they are yellow.

I was specifically looking for a brake/clutch pedal with rubber inserts for those wet/dress shoe days. The all metal ones are too slippery when wet or when wearing hard soled shoes. These pads came from a British company/guy guy I found on eBay - ~$100 for the set.

The mats were a great investment! I alos got the matching deck mat for about $250. Great quality, but I wonder whether he is still in business - I am pretty sure he was not Porsche licensed? (see above for source).

Thanks everyone for your input - I think I'll keep them!
