I got a set of aluminum pedals from ebay and installed them a couple days ago. Very easy installation and they look fairly good. I won't go over the installation since it has been covered extensively. The pedals came with two different types of screws: 6 socket (allen head) machine screws with washers and nuts for the brake and clutch pedals, and 6 phillips flat head countersunk sheet metal screws for the rest and gas pedals. Anyway, the socket screws looked okay but I really did not like the way the phillips flatheads looked. They were small and stainless so they did not even match the aluminum. They also made the pedals look as if they were missing 3 rubber plugs. So I got 6 black pan head screws to replace the ones for the rest and gas pedals. The new screw heads are almost the same size as the rubber plugs so it doesn't look that weird. The camera flash make them obvious, but they really blend in and looks just like another rubber plug. What do you guys think?

Here is a picture that shows the gas pedal with the small flat head silver screws:

I removed the dead pedal and the top screw hole on the aluminum dead pedal matched exactly the mounting hole. I even re-used the dead pedal stock top screw since it was black. For the gas pedal, I just screwed into the stock plastic pedal.

I installed the same set! I was very pleased with the quality--they look OEM B) Hardest part of the install was drilling through the metal brake pedal--of course once I got the right drill bit it was a lot easier :P

Hello: For those who have installed the aluminum pedals, do you have any issues with the gas pedal? I installed a similar set. The little joystick thing behind the gas pedal rests against, but does not snap into, a circular depression on the back of the gas pedal. It seems that with the added weight of the aluminum pedals, if I have to quickly lift off the gas, the pedal snaps back towards me and the little joystick thing gets out of alignment which then causes poor accelerator response until I reach down and realign it. Should the little joystick thing actually snap into the back of the gas pedal? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Scott

Yes, the ball on the end of the throttle line/lever should actually snap into the back of the pedal.

Good to know. Thank you very much for the response. Regards, Scott P.S. After I got your post, I was able to get it to snap in. Thanks.

This is a great solution and I tried to find similar screws. But, I found these instead at Home Depot and they seem to work well for now. They are black plastic screw covers.

i can't tell you for sure, but i'm fairly confident that they are almost exactly if not exactly the same
you can also buy them blank, without the "PORSCHE" on it
just search for aluminum pedals rather than porsche aluminum pedals

i have the exact same pedals except i paid a lot more for them because mine say "RUF" on them
i bought them as a souvenir of my visit to the RUF Werkes :)
a great day- i got to drive the RTurbo that was on the cover of Road and Track and lots of other mags :)

I got the same pedals from Suncoast and found the clutch pedal pulled the floor mat when released after shifting. So I removed the aluminum covers from the clutch and brake, and replaced with new rubbers. Gas and dead pedal still look nice, and clutch and brake are functional.

Picked up these pedals off Ebay with the Porsche branding, I am sure they are not licensed as they were $90, but look good. The bolts for the clutch and brake pedals were really poor so I actually riveted the pedals with 5/23 Aluminum Rivets that way the bolts will not come loose. So far so good and nice addition to the interior. :thumbup:
