Just with the tyre profile change you must have gained some time advantage from the extra traction

Congratulations!!

Those ABC steel pedals are nice. Do they come as stock? Sorry if you have already mentioned in the thread. If it was bought online, are they available for the MT Jetta?

Thanks in advance!
Installed these in my jetta yesterday, Got it from Aliexpress.

there you go, http://www.aliexpress.com/item/RHD-O...274869174.html

Previously there wasn't any seller with the RHD one's, And i had to request several sellers to source it for me, The one i bought it from arranged it for me the quickest, Now i think there are a few more sellers with the RHD ones, I am suprised to see how much the grip of the clutch and brake pedals have increased

Love em totally! Worth the money spent.

Sweet! Also just ask your friend to mention RHD clearly again to the seller, Since my seller too had sent me the LHD one at first, When i received the LHD one, He sent me another RHD accelerator pedal, The brake and clutch pedal are universal type, fits both RHD and LHD vehicles, Its all about the Accelerator pedal.

Thanks. Was it difficult to install? Did you have to use adhesive? Specially for the A pedal.

Clutch and brake pedal was a direct swap, For the A pedal we did use some adhesive just for safety, Since my pedal was slightly bent from the top corner side it wasn't fitting 100%, just about 95% so we used a little adhesive just to be sure, Should just be a 5 minute job and a simple DIY.

Thanks Tanveer!

B and C pedals are a direct swap. But for the A pedal, (stock) top rubber needs to be removed before fixing the new one or does it fit OVER the stock rubber?

We could'nt find a way to remove the top rubber, Google din't help much either, As i was running out of time we decided to keep it over it, As faar as we tried the rubber doesn't seems to be removable. Will check it once more when i go to install the self parking.

Yes. A Pedal does not seem to have any rubber over it. Can you try it this way?

Had installed the same way as it can be seen in link 1, The only difference was the we did not remove the plug since we were not sure if it might throwup any errors, Rest everything was the same.

I have ordered it through the same link along with a Gateway.

Will update once I get it and replace..

What else have you purchased on-line and successfully implemented?

Sweet,
I have added self parking pla 2.0 to my cart, Which should cost me not more than 11-12k With shipping via EMS, Will buy it on 11th November during the aliexpress sale, Installation shouldn't take more than an hour, I had also bought the lip boot and roof spoiler, both painted, Also got the ESP switch installed, Must say ESP cuts off a lot of power when on, Gunning it with ESP off is fun once a while From where did you get the gateway? You bought it to get the fatigue remind?
Link please

Hi Tanveer, Sorry for the delay.

I am getting the new gateway for the Fatigue remind. Initially, I was wondering if it was worth replacing Gateway only for this. But then, cost was $40 and I thought what the heck..?

Link: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Canbu...235887193.html

Hope this works in English.
