Here's the exact post I followed to do this install
Also use running alchohol on the inside of the new brake pedal rubber piece installing it from bottom and then pop the top part on.

Oh rob...you have a disease that has no known cure... M-itis

The only way to control the disease is by purchasing all the M performance models as soon as they are available.

You need to trade in the 5 and the x5, their not M spec. (the longer you have them the worse M-itis becomes)

LOL

JK. I would wait for the LCI, caz you either can snag a deal on the pre-lci M or get some awesome new tech for lci M. The X5 I would keep regardless lol

Did you end up being able to install yourself or did you have a tech do it?

Thank you!
Sean:
The alchohol trick did the trick with the brake pad
Just put a bunch on the inside of the pad not just around the edges
Start at the bottom then push upwards it should pop right on

With the gas pedal use a t30 torq to take the bolt out
Push pedal up to dislodge from a metal piece that hooks into the floor board!
It different that previous models
There is not left to right movement and no clip to break"thank god"
It will be attached by a wire harness u simply detach it
Although my friend showed me how to cause itsin pretty good
And I did not want to break that piece
I was able to do 9/10 th of this on my own
Just taking the connector was was issue.
Ill pm u my info if u want to talk before doing it
Cheers
Rob
