Black aluminum Pedals

Has anybody tried these black aluminum pedals? I've never seen them installed. Haven't been able to find plain black ones without logos.
Trying to decide between black or bare aluminum with my interior which is a bit less common (picture below). With black poplar trim, black footwell/dash, and light seats, I'm afraid shiny aluminum pedals would stand out too much since my interior has very little aluminum to begin with. I want to try to keep the interior subtle and go for the classier/older vibe.

I'd like to get you guys' opinion.

Those black //M pedals are nice, probably what I would go for, not too big a fan of the aluminum ones

You know you could just buy that and not use the 3rd pedal...

That would be a great idea if the brake pedal on the AT was the same size as the MT.

These are sweet but I want plain black. Never seen plain black for sale nor anybody with them (black) mounted.
I was thinking of trying the aluminum ones and painting them if I prefer black. However, I heard painting aluminum is a pain.

Painting aluminum is all in the prep work and can be done well but for a high-contact item like car pedals you're still best off going with anodized.

I have the black pedals on my AT 335.

There's a guy on ebay that sells them in MT and AT versions.
I think I paid 39 bucks total. They're actually pretty dang good quality. Solid metal and rubber.

They screw into the existing pedals. Only issue is with the brake pedal. Just need to be careful how you drill the holes.

Beautiful interior Pawlin. I have a set of these black ones in my car:

Not solid black but close. I was going for a subtle look as well and I like them a lot.
