Dead Pedal for E90 Track Car

Hey everyone,

I wanted to find out what options are out there for replacing the OEM dead pedal on an E90...

I've stripped mine down entirely and I removed the front carpets. Which means, now I don't have a dead pedal. I don't need it while on the track, but it is nice to be able to rest your left foot on the dead pedal while driving on the highway.

How have you solved this problem?

Just make sure you don't do this: http://www.g8board.com/forums/4-tech...ead-pedal.html. The Kia guy did it better and you should do similar since you will need floor pan too http://www.kia-forums.com/kia-carens...pedal-diy.html

So I will be getting the VAC floor pans but they only have a cut out for dead pedal.

Good enough reason not to buy VAC and make your own.
