took me about 7 minutes to replace all 3 without any spray or soap. mine came off without any force and i installed them the same way....no force used. very easy and they look good. much better choice then screw-on type.

Can anyone tell me if the kickdown mode still works with the new pedal? I have an automatic and I ordered these pedals, so it would be a bummer if the new accelerator module does not have the kickdown switch!

Thanks for the awesome DIY!

Thanks for the DIY. The gas pedal was so easy, done in under 5 minutes.

I spent 30 minutes on the brake pedal...gave up

Came back, soaked the back with vinyl conditioner. Slipped the bottom and left side on. Pulled hard and got the right side on. Then all I did was push on the top of the pedal itself very hard (the metal part), and the top part popped itself in place.

It took me 20 min to do this, whithout this DIY, it would be hours probably.
The brake pedal is easy, soaked it in alcohol, them bottom first, then sides, etc.. the metal part came off, put it in place, then second try and voilá.

The gas pedal was the tricky part. I have a 2012 E92, so the pedal is different. The stainless steel one is much bigger, the other one is "floating" as someone already said. I would like the stainless steel one was compact like these. Other difference I noticed is when you kickdown shift. With the original one you could't hear the click, the SS pedal is louder. The connector fits perfectly but it was tricky to remove it. While putting the new one I broke the little pin near the screw hole, I couldn't fit the screw in place so while trying to go a bit sideways it broke. Not sure if it was my mistake but it looks to me that the pin do not fit. Other than that everything fits perfectly and I love the looks.

Thanks OP and all who contributed for this DIY.

Just did this DIY. Two Things:

1- The Rubbing Alcohol for a lubricant on the brake pedal literally makes what would be a 5 hour DIY into a 15 seconds slip on job. I started this with out the Alcohol, even taking off the steel frame-like one person suggested, and it was brutal. DO NOT TAKE THE METAL FRAME OFF!!!! That metal frame alone took me a hour to get back onto the rubber pad with lots of soap and hot water. Just use Rubbing Alcohol and slip it on from the top-doorside first then the bottom-doorside then the bottom centerside. Then when you get all three corners on you will need to do a hard push to get the final top-centerside corner on. You will have to push hard enough to depress the brake pedal all the way down! And then it will pop on.

2- my Accelerator Pedal's plug was oriented different than the steel replacement pedal. My plug unclips upwards whereas the steel pedal plug unclips-or clips in from the bottom up. I had to do a google search to realize BMW for no apparent reason makes two types of pedals that ONLY differ by the way this clip is clipped in. If you have the bottom facing clip in then this part of the DIY will be extremely easy and quick since access to the plug is clear to see and reach.

However if you are like me and have the upward facing clip then this part of the DIY will be the hardest!!!

Access to release the upward facing clip is extremely tight and the ONLY way I managed to finally get it (after breaking one of the anchoring clips) was to google an image of how the thing clipped into the pedal. Once I got a visual I realized a way for squeezing it off. Yes you have to squeeze it off. That is the solution BUT access to be able to get a proper squeeze and pull-upwards is hard.

Said and done it was worth it. Car looks like a $50,000 BMW now and not some Eastern European taxi cab!
