I'd like to invest in some aluminum pedals for my Boxster to help sporty up the look. I see lots of different ones on ebay and elsewhere, but it is difficult to tell the quality of the craftsmanship based upon a tiny little picture. I've heard that the ones designed specifically for the Boxster are better than the more generic ones that work on a variety of Porsches. What brands do you recommend? What style (yes rubber nobs, no rubber nobs, etc)? Where is the cheapest place to buy them?

Thanks,

-Jeremy

I paid $90 four years ago on eBay but I can't remember the manufacturer. That was for all four pedals made for the Boxster. They're aluminum with raised metal bosses around the holes which really give a good bite on your soles. I never tried the rubber knobs but I can't see them giving as much traction. Couldn't be happier with them and I couldn't justify the $300 for Rennlines or Gemballas.

I like the Autovation pedals. They are reasonably priced and the gas pedal has a shape which makes sense. The pedals with the extension on the bottom of the gas pedal can be a problem. Since he pedal hinges at the bottom, pressing on that extension does little to depress the pedal and mostly just acts to twist the fragile plastic hinge. The Autovation gas pedal has an extension along most of the side of the pedal. If your feet are narrow, this extension can be very helpful for heel-toe down-shifting. (Keep in mind that a lot of folks just press the brake with the ball of their foot and roll the right side over to the gas pedal.) I like the Competition Matte finish pictured below.
