I wouldnt put aftermarket ones on, these things are the real deal and would be ADR approved.

I got a set for $220 today.

I'd say it'd be no problem finding some aftermarket, ADR approved alloy pedals.

I think the $220 ones and the $30 ones will do the same job,ill give the cheap ones at try since had Niken ones on my last car and they did the job.
The only difference between the two is $190

Re: Alloy Pedals now an option across the whole BA range...

Bloody hell
That's a bit steep. At least if you buy the aftermarket ones, you get the old ones to get some sort of cash back from the wreckers or sell to someone else.

Raises an interesting question about the cost of options. Do you pay the full cost of the item, or the full cost of the item subsidised by the cost of the part you would have gotten as standard (Where you would have gotten a standard bit that is).

To put it another way, do you pay the difference between the cost of the option part and the cost of the standard part (Fair and reasobnable ) ?, or just the cost wholeshot, and Ford not only get to keep the standrd part to put on another car, but they get the $ margin on the new option bit as well (Bloody unfair and unreasonable) ?

Hmmmmmm food for thought !

Re: Alloy Pedals now an option across the whole BA range...

Well considering these go over the top of your existing pedals (less the rubber brake bit) i really cant answer your question BossyXR8. But i have the same question about the sports steering wheel that cant be fitted at dealer level....

I just dont think id bother putting pedals on a car that would made for it to start with, you pay a price but at the same time atleast youve got something that fits properly and isnt going to stuff up your insurance.
