i've been told that i'm the first one with the sport pedal set in the u.s. anyone else have them yet? i thought i'd post up to show how sweet they look. they really add something nice to the interior of the cockpit when driving. :cool:

Wow those look amazing. I believe there is a video in the video section showing the installation of the sport pedals (Perhaps it was Cenix?)

bostongtr, the dead pedal has a backing plate that screws & snaps in through the carpeting on the other side. brake pedal is just a slip-on deal. accelerator needs to be totally replaced with the whole sensor assembly because the design of the stock accelerator is a one-piece lever. this is why the cost is high.

darkride, that wasn't my video posted so i can't take credit for that.

thsiao, go take a look at your stock accelerator. this one has the same dimensions. but i guess i see what you're talking about.

audi4t, the dead pedal would definitely be available separately. in my personal opinion, i do not think this is the same dead pedal that will be included in the ct200h f-sport model. sewell may have given me the one for the is models to expedite their order fulfillment.

I'm in for that :D

I bet a machined aluminum dead pedal would attract a lot of potential buyers!

Keep me updated if you decide to go ahead with it.

The sport pedals look great, all be it an somewhat expensive look. But aluminum dead pedal would be an awesome addition to the driver side

So, the accelerator is a complete swap out then, is that what you are saying? As the video that Sewell attach to the item shows the guy taking the assembly out but then knocking the pin out and just replacing the pedal.

If it is a complete unit replacement then how long did this take you and how easy / difficult is this?

Thanks.

chunky1234, if you take a look at your accelerator pedal, you will know what i mean. the stock accelerator pedal lever is one-piece. you cannot simply knock out a pin and replace the actual contact pad. the new assembly you get though will have that multi-piece design, so it's kind of a catch 22.

accelerator pedal assembly replacement is simple: unplug sensor, unscrew 2 bolts, replace assembly. 10 minute job.

Thanks very much, for the confirmation, the Sewell video is misleading then.

Just one final thing, the foot rest is a very different shape to the black plastic one installed. I assume the installation of this just uses the same holes in the carpet, once you have pulled off the black plastic one?

Will be ordering these from Sewell, but not just yet, have already spent $500 with them and I have to pay postage and import duty to the UK.

the sewell video is not necessarily misleading; but it does not apply to the ct200h in its stock form if it comes with a 1-piece accelerator lever/pedal assembly.

the black plastic foot rest is not screwed in. ideally, you'll want to peel it off the carpet (seems attached by a strong adhesive) and then install the dead pedal. i left the black plastic foot rest alone, if you look closely at the pics i posted. i simply used the black plastic portion as a template to neatly install the dead pedal and screwed it in on top of it. if you have the patience and want a cleaner install, i suggest taking the time to take off the black piece first.
