It is pretty stupid as the pedals are standard on the V6 in the UK.
Plus UK cars get the footrest across the whole range too.
I think it's descrimination against or cousins across the pond!

Yep, Lee - I did wonder how it would be but there's no discernible difference, it feels just the same underfoot.
Cheers,
I think I'll get some.

So I installed the sport pedals and thought I'd add a little trick i found.

The use of a bottle opener..not necessarily with Kangaroo testicles attached. The slight bend and rigidity really helped.

Nice job.
One question though.
Do you have to keep that bottle opener in the fridge?
Thought it might be a bit "floppy" at room temperature?
