    I missed the sports pedals from my 350Z

    just installed these sports pedals for my prius, it looks and feels much better when I drive.

    Let me know what you guys think :)

    Looks great, especially the Prius logo. I just wish the dead pedal cover were wide enough to cover the strip of carpet that's extremely susceptible to wear, then I'd definitely consider it. Danny was going to make a pedal set like that from Ultimate Pedals available on the PC shop but nothing came of it.

    hey, I haven't drilled holes for the dead pedal cover yet. I might move it to the right abit more, also, I'm going to add the prius weather mats as well. The end result will look even better than what I have so far

    The pedals were easy to install, the left dead pedal does require drilling, 3 screws, it looks pretty easy.

    Overall,they look soo sick, better grip, and I feel like i'm driving mt 350z all over again, haha:p

    Glad I was not the only one that thought this! Certaintly looks sporty that is for sure! Looks like you would have to drill though to mount that plate to the floor. Very clean install though. I once added pedals like this to my old Eclipse, but they had brackets that went on just over the stock rubber.

    you won't regret it, plus shipping was really fast, took 2 days for the item to arrive, and it was shipped from Taiwan to Canada

    if the pedals are the same than it should fit.

    you should contact the seller to double check

    ucsmfu,

    Did the drilling for the footrest go in to the existing plastic piece or did you have to drill in to the carpet area? Did you feel the need to seal the drilled holes?

    I really like these pedals and will probably be purchasing them. It will give me the feeling of being back in a Triumph TR4 I had many years ago :)

    Thanks,

    Dwight

    hey, yes I drilled the footrest directly into the existing plastic piece. Drilling is required, otherwise the plate would move around if you were just to leave it there.

    Techniques for drilling, Drill the screws hard, to create the whole, than remove the screw and use a screw driver to slowly screw the screws back in. otherwise if u use the powerdrill, it'll just keep spinning and spinning, and you'll be getting no where.

    It's stairofoam underneath the carpet, so you gotta be gentle, you don't drill too hard.

    Hope this helps.

    take it easy !!!
