Just put the order in, can't wait! I was driving around with my E38 in stop/go traffic and noticed how little "lag" there was in the pedal, which of course made driving it hard a bit more fun. I hope this at least feels the same in the F01. I remember last week I was changing lanes while stopped on the freeway and there was almost a second before the F01 reacted (though of course when it did, it just flew), but when cars in other lanes are going even a few miles an hour, that delay really messes up your timing.

Where did you mount the remote control? Oh, and if you have it set on something (like Eco, or Sport, etc) does it keep that setting after a restart, or does it default to something?

Does this affect the driving modes (eco/comfort+/comfort/sport/sport+)? Is this easy to unplug for bringing in your car for warranty work? I worry about voiding my warranty, yea its a lease but still...

It does not affect driving modes, just increases throttle response from slight to stupid fast if you so desire.

Each of its 3 individual modes (Eco, Sport, and Sport+) can also be increased or decreased individually for a total 21 different throttle curves you can choose from.

Now that I did it. I can get it on and off in 5 min flat. Only one screw and one harness. Nothing else. Very very easy.

I can attest, now that I got use to driving my car with this, I can't take it off. Completely transforms the driving experience and definitely a must have for our cars IMO. I drove an audi yesterday and the amount of lag in the throttle was frustrating

Ya. You just hide the wires wherever you want. You may have to pull up the carpeting a bit but the install is up to you.

Damn you, Damn you, Damn you!

Now I guess I have to get one of these too.

Just placed my order, not bad for 256.99 using the promo code (BFPB) Raj mentioned. Then just for kicks, I entered promo code RWS and it came up FREE! I just had to pay $10 shipping and handling. Can't beat that, thanks again Raj!

I tried the RWS promo code also. It doubled the price on me and gave me an error stating I have a Kia and do not qualify for the discount. Had to go to a colleagues computer and then place the order instead. Guess the word is out!

When I spoke to the seller at Motive Mods, he actually did try to do a group buy on the pedal box a few months ago with Bimmerfest members. It flopped. I think we sold more on this thread than he did during his group buy.

From what I recall, Terry at BMS was asked to do a group by on the N63 Tune, but declined.

Still a great combo at an overall great price. #1 and #2 Bang for the buck by a long shot.

Have had a few days to evaluate this now. Favorite mode is Regular Sport on the pedalbox. If the car is anywhere above 2000 RPM typically the pedalbox makes it take off like a rocket. If you are in the 1000 RPM range, there is still a bit of a lag, but still very improved once you get the RPM's up a bit. If you have the car suspension on sport mode which normally runs a gear lower and a bit higher RPM's, then the pedalbox really shines. Just a light stomp on the gas and your pushed back in your seat almost in an instant and flying forward. One thing I have noticed is I am using the brakes so much more now cause I am just jetting away all the time but then running into forward traffic. Gonna have to get used to it a bit more and lighten up on the car a bit I think. But when you want the acceleration in a timely manner, it is finally there with very much improved diminished lag. Still an excellent addition to any Kia!

Just run the cord under then floor mat and hide the controller between the seat and middle console. It sould not be hard to find a place to shove the controller so it is not visible.

Just installed mine, I ran it along the steering column and used the nice velcro they supplied to stick it next to the steering wheel where I could see it.

Have not driven the car yet. I assume the Prog button is for the different modes. What are the + and - buttons and the second set of lights for?

The +/- allows you to adjust the ramp rate of the throttle curve in each program. 3+ will make the throttle more sensitive, -3 less sensitive.
