The sheer driving experience of a BMW involves just a few direct connections between you and your car: Your hands on the wheel, your butt in the seat, and your feet on the pedals. We can sometimes take the last piece of that equation for granted, as your feet are generally out of sight under the dash, and your shoes tend to "dumb down" or numb that part of the experience.
But if you're doing heel-toe braking, trail braking, or have ever driven a car with soaking wet shoes, you suddenly have an appreciation of how GRIP comes into play on your BMWs clutch, brake and throttle pedals.

Our BimmerWorld Racing pedals are designed to be ideal for ALL driving – street, track or race. Made of aircraft quality aluminum, they are CNC machined for extreme precision for both form and function. The stock rubber BMW pedal pads (on the clutch and brake) are known to be too slippery when doing fancy footwork. The rubber pad covers themselves can even pop off at an inopportune time, causing a huge loss of grip when you least expect it. Our aluminum pedal pads completely remove these rubber slip covers (and their inherent issues).
Our brake and clutch pedals install solidly to the pedal arms so that they are one with your pedal assembly. No play, no more flimsy rubber cover, and the perfect surface for fully connected driving feel.
Sure Footing Surface What makes these pedals ideal for all driving? It's the tactile high-grip surface. Hundreds of tiny triangular pyramids grip the bottom of your shoe with full confidence. The harder you push, the harder those tiny pyramids bite back, keeping you sure-footed under braking, clutching, and heel-toe brake heroics. One of the things we like best for heel-toeing is you can get enough grip to apply full braking pressure even with your foot on just the edge of the pedal. This is because the shoe grabbing surface extends all the way to the very edge.

The throttle pedal has a grid pattern as well, but to keep the surface smoother with less drag the tops of the pyramid grid are machined flat. This allows you to make quick right foot adjustments on the fly (also perfect for heel-toe brake technique.)
Blip the throttle, with a twist of the ankle! Our custom gas pedal design also has a wider profile, which helps bring the left hand edge of the accelerator a little closer to your brake pedal. This profile is subtle enough to remain in keeping with a stock interior, but noticeable in track use. This is GREAT for heel-toe action, and (with some practice) allows you to "blip" the throttle under braking a little bit easier.
Choose from Two Finishes: Black or Natural Aluminum Looking for a more stealth appearance? No problem! Upgrade to our optional Satin Black finish for $15 more. You get the same shoe-gripping performance, but with a rugged black anodized coating for a muted (but still "racey") look.
For LHD models only. Not for RHD models, which have a different pedal shape.
