the top in the middle is red "sport plus" mode.
The second line you should have + and - to adjust the settings
Press + will make it green.

Hi again,

So today the snow was gone on the streets. So i decided to actually test this thing more.
I dont know if my unit is faulty or so. I realy dident feel any diffrence

I saw this video. A salesman for the pedalbox tested this unit. So i decided to do it the same way. Theres no diffrences on the RPM when switching between the modes.

You may want to send it back to the company and get another one; it sounds like you might have a defective unit. Alternatively, you could take your car in to a mechanic and pay him to double-check and make sure it's attached correctly (no offense if you did the job yourself! .

Admittedly I've never driven mine in snow, but it really shouldn't make any difference. The snow issue is that pedalbox makes your car accelerate faster, and that can be dangerous when the pavement is slick, but it's dangerous because the car -does- still accelerate. It has no snow-sensor built-in.

Thank you for the reply. Well, i did install it correctly. Otherwise i would have gotten machine errors all of the dashboard, right? And on top fo that the pedal would not been working.

I think its a faulty one tbh. I will contact my seller.

Best regards,


ot: Could i show the seller this video? Or will claim that i caused the damage by using it the wrong way? (They told me not to switch mode will using the gaspedal)

My local BMW dealership installed it for me, costed about $70-75, but they did the job well, wires were hidden perfectly.

Well, thats not the problem. The install itself is super easy, and would never let my Peugeot dealership install it for me, no offence (Then again you have a much nicer car than me )

Its a faulty unit for sure! First 1 i got was the wrong one, 6pins. Then i get this faulty one. Im dasdasdsadas

Havent sent the wrong one back yet, maybe i could steal that software card and put it in the faulty one..

So today i got the opportunity to actually try this thing. The snow is now all gone and such.

Firstly, my car reacts much faster. Not in a way that i could have achieved by pressing the throttle more. Its like, the "lagg" is gone. Wich means it accelerate faster.

Its a fun little toy that i by now cant be without. I dont know the case with BMW. But with Peugeots you have a very low RPM when going from start. And this often result in
motor failure(or what you call it) Pedalbox fixed this for sure.

Definitely worth the cash.

love mine, think i set mine to top red lights one in the middle. and two green lights on the bottom. someone else suggested that awhile ago. I've had mine for almost year, love it. When I drive another car for awhile and get back in my 7, it's scary fast.

Im starting to wonder if this might be a good investment for me for the winter. I assume it has a mode that slows down the response as well? I notice that with the BMS stage 2, I loose traction easily now that winter is upon us, and the roads are colder. Even if i don't accelerate too hard the torque kicks in and a get some slippage.

Does it have a snow mode? My infinity fx35 had a snow button that seemed to basically limit the ability to press the pedal very hard. If so i would think this might be a win win for winter and summer.

thanks in advance
