ACS Pedals Installed

Just installed my ACS pedals today. I was very skeptical about doing this, but I am very happy with how they turned out.

I just lined the pedals up on the old pedals and marked where the holes needed drilled, drilled the holes, and then attached the new pedals with the hardware provided. I would HIGHLY recommend removing the gas pedal to install that one (there is a DIY on the forum to do that).

How did you remove the stationary? Thanks for your help!

You don't need to remove that one. The screws provided are self-tapping, so just line the dead pedal up and drill the screws in.

The brake pedal is easier because there is more room to get your hands behind it to put the nuts on the bolts.

The gas pedal on the other hand..... Save yourself some time and remove it. I should have done that but I didn't think of it until it was too late.

Perhaps yours is different than mine, but I didn't have an M dead pedal. I had the plastic dead pedal, and you don't remove that because there isn't anything solid behind it to put the ACS pedal on (to my knowledge). The ACS pedals are basically pedal "covers", so they don't get installed the same as a brand new pedal unit. They get put over top. You will want to remove the rubber cover on the brake pedal.

This isn't mandatory, but it sure makes reaching the backside of the pedal a lot easier. The ACS pedals come with screws and bolts, and it is hard to put a bolt on the backside of the gas pedal because there is not much room to work. It would be much easier to remove the gas pedal assembly altogether (DIY: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75322), put the ACS pedal on, then reinstall the gas pedal.

Here is a *generic* DIY for putting stainless steel (or ACS) pedals on. You may have to modify it slightly.

It's hard if you don't do it the right way.

We did it the right way. I haven't ever done anything like that before and am new to doing my own modifications. Also a few runs to Bi-Mart

I've been driving around with these today, and they feel good. The real test will be once they get wet. They feel very similar to the stock pedals, maybe slightly more grip. The cosmetic aspect is the real improvement.

The only problem is that the bolts on the gas pedal stick out the rear of the pedal so far that I can't use kick-down because the bolts bottom the pedal out. When I get back home today I am going to remove the pedal and grind the bolts down.
