  • Dead pedals are such a rip off!

    So I'm in the market for a dead pedal only for one reason.I have a small tear in the floor carpet from pushing in the clutch. A DP would cover it nicely.
    What I'm getting at is, if I bought one and added it,I think it would be the final touch to my cars interior.A DP would cover the tear and make my interior perfect. BUT I am shocked to see the prices that DP's go for. What a rip off for these things!
    Why are they so much? No company has slammed them out and made them affordable?
    Honestly, I think my friend can make me one in his muffler shop for about $20.00 and a burger.
    Is there a source for DP's that I have not located yet with fair prices? And yes I checked ebay and they are hitting some pretty high bids for the ones that are listed.

      Hi Archie

      $75 - Aluminum or stainless steel - Hartge style


      $85 - Stainless only - M-Technic - requires trimming of the plastic speaker panel (like for the OEM unit)





      $75 - Aluminum . For e30 racecar with regular wheel well, but no carpet


      $75 - Aluminum only (stainless model pictured). Plain or black anodized. For e30 racecars with hammered wheel well (for clearing wide wheels). Similar to above but with two curved tabs.

                          +1 If my car came with one stock I'd be for that, but just to add "bling" that's not for me. I can see practically for a race car, but not for a street car. It's kinda like adding stainless pedals, etc. I'll put my money elsewhere.

                              I wish that brand new M3s were only $5k, or that CF airboxes sold for $200... ;-)
