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.
