I have installed the beautifully hand crafted aluminum pedals made by
John Skaggs. I will defer to John to send you the details, but I
will tell you that I have enjoyed them without reservation. They are a
fit, ultra purposeful and expensive looking, and a truly unique way
of personalizing your interior. People always comment on them, and
want to know if they are stock, because although they look
outrageous, they don't look like "slap-ons."
I have even been challenged on their legality in Street Prepared
(SCCA Solo), but they are totally legal for racing in Street
Prepared, but I don't think that they are legal in Stock.
Easy to put on, relatively inexpensive, attractive. I would not look
any further than John for your pedals. I ordered mine (see below for
some details) over the net, sent a check, and they were delivered
within a few days. Domzi (Tony Topping) has them, and I know that
he would echo my comments, and more (Tony?).
Here is what I have foldered:

Subject: competition pedals
I have just finished installing a set of the competition pedals which many of
you may have seen advertised in the classified section of The Roundel. These
are the ones, accompanied by a photograph, on p. 109 of the current issue
by Speedware Motorsport in Texas.
I can only say that they are absolutely *first class* and gorgeous to
Made of billet aluminum, they are superbly machined, real works of art. They
are priced *very competetively* with the Japanese pedals offered by many of
tuners and are just infinitely nicer. As compared to the pricing of AC
Schnitzer or RD, these pedals offer tremendous savings in price with no
compromise in quality.
The size is exactly the same as the stock pedals making toe-and
breeze. They are simple to attach--30 minutes should do it. (Hint--use a
little putty on your hopefully small fingertip to attach the bolts on the
John Skaggs, who makes these beauties, has promised that he will make a
deadpedal available after the first of the year. He can be reached at
972-722-2886 for those of you who may be interested.

Well, they sat around for a while but just got John Skaggs' pedals installed.
WOW. These are the best I've seen short of Schnitzer! At (price
may have changed) or so for the set, a bargain for what you get.
Installation was a snap. I highly
recommend them to anyone interested in upgrading the pedals in his/her
bimmer. John's email is
Thanks to Tony Topping who first "checked them out."
John is in the process of machining dead pedals as well, can't wait! :)

John sells pedals for the brake, clutch and throttle, and now also
offers an absolutely beautiful dead pedal. E mail to him is the best
way to make your contact, as he has a real job as well, and would
probably appreciate the reserved use of his time. E mail him at:
I have no business connection to John, and paid full retail for his
