it should because for heavy footers like myself it actually cuts down the paddle sensitivity.

It is one of the best mod ever and cheap! Just keep in mind this will not increase horse power. It will remove the the lag from throttle response. Whoever don't believe this, gotta buy one and see it yourself. Guarantee you will leave it on all the time LOL. I had sprintbooster on my old 2007 E63 AMG, same function as Pedal box. What a great fun toy!

I was wrong

For those of you who have had the pedal box for a while. Try this. Turn of the box for a day and drive around. You will be amazed how laggy the car is. Dramatic change you will see.

My PedalBox Review

Just a quick warnig, Don't ever turn the pedal box while the car is still warming up on a cold start, it will bring the check engine light and a drivetrain malfunction.

Hmmmm......I have not had this problem. You got some issues with drivetrain malfunctions I think.

Had alot of spare time today so I slapped one of these in the 7. Definitely a welcome adjustment. Tried it on Sport+ and that seemed just right for me. Keep in mind I did some of my growing up during the ADD generation, so this setting may be a little too annoying to those of you who aren't into constant acceleration and subsequent braking (brakes were smelling like a mofo after my test run). Here are some close-up pics of the harness installation. Still haven't fully decided upon where I want to mount the controller. Also still have to get my BMS installed but I'm waiting until I have enough spare time so that I don't rush and break anything - as I've been known to do.

Hi,

I have a question regarding the pedalbox. Using this box, could it harm the car in any way?
Will get mine tomorrow and was just thinking of this.

No, but 1 important tip, only turn the pedalbox on when your car is all warmed up and ready to be driven, so don't turn it on while the car is having a cold start, in a morning.

I see, thank you m8 for the info.

Could the pedalbox break in someway and make me smash in to other cars?
Like the software gets defect and the car starts to accelerate by it self? (yea i exaggerates, but thats just me.)

Thanks for the reply, appreciate it.

No, it's a plugin and play, it doesn't change the ECU, it just remaps the driving settings. Even if it somehow breaks, then the car will just drive normally without any extra sensitivity. I really enjoyed the pedalbox in my 7, couldn't drive without it

Is there a reason why only turn on when the car is warmed up?

My pedal box is on Red mode all day long, I never turn it off. I don't experience any problem at all. May be you know something I don't

1 time my 750 was still warming up in cold, I turned the pedal box on, the RPM arrow jumped up and down a few times, which caused a drive train malfunction, apparently BMW's main ECU got confused.

Oh, you live in LA. Man it's always warm in LA, your car is always warm too. Here in Canada we get -35 sometimes, warming up a car is essential

I installed this last November, and I love it. It truly transformed the way my car feels. Mbworldz is right, this doesn't increase horsepower, but I think it does increase the amount of horsepower you get when you tap the pedal. It's not the same as slamming your foot on the pedal hard and fast--I tried that a few times before I put the pedalbox on, just to see if there's a difference. There's definitely a difference. This doesn't increase your horsepower, but it feels as if it does because it summons that power so much faster.

I've been delighted with this modification, and I highly recommend it.

This is absolutely true. This thing will definitely make your car go faster with "EASE" lol.
Plus it doesn't eat your gas, I think I get better gas mileage on the freeway. I am not kidding.

I always have the setting to the MAX "red" in the middle. But on the bottom, I think everyone should start from +1 first, cause I heard it might throw an error message on board just in case.

Got my pedalbox today. Made the install in less than 2min.

As for the pedalbox.

I did feel the change, but not much tbh. Im not that impressed.
Its alot of snow here and that could be the main reason, the wheels did spin some.

Gotta test it when the spring hits!

Just don't confuse yourself this thing will give you in massive horse power, it won't.
Try it on a dry road and put that in red mode +1 green.

For the max settings on the top is RED Sports +
As for the curvees on the bottom, you need to experience it which level, we all different.
But don't just use the + to add 3 greens. Add one first. As I mentioned earlier, some people have error when it set to all green. Try it one at a time.
