since you are drilling into steel, undersize the hole a bit and use the screw to thread its way thru. that way using the nust on the screw becomes an option, that is how i did it and it came out just fine

Well I think we need to know the company, there are only 68 sponsors, hard to guess which one you are talking about. I have not installed the black or carbon fiber ones but I am looking at the black M version just not sure which are the best quality. They all seem like cheap knock offs.

No need to remove they will be lucky to get the car back with better pedals. Besides the gas pedal would have four holes in pedal. the brake which would be covered back up with the stock pedal cover would be ok but I really would worry about at all. Granted this is my first BMW. Never had any problems with any modes to 4 Benz.

They look heavy duty and in the video the clear aluminum ones have the M logo on them. However, the product images don't show the M logo? Maybe that is special order.

Damn, I wanted to get a giant ///M painted on my hood! haha

Looks like a good kit...I want to get pedals only for my accelerator and brake to match the stock dead pedal.

Great looking set you are going to love it... the install will take you about an hour or so... the Gas Pedal is a little hard and the dead pedal top two are hard to get to so make sure you have shot screw driver...
