Ordered a set of replacement pedals to change out the standard black plastic. Along with a set of white/blue bulbs to replace the very yellow fog light bulbs.


Half way through pedals...


Finished...


About 20 minutes all in.

No pics of the fog light bulbs but they were very easy to do.

Very nice - I orderd these from the factory with my Q3 coming in a month or so. Was there no cover for the dead pedal though? The illustration from Audi didn't show one and the description was too generic, but for $49 I suppose I shouldn't complain...

Hehe, I don't drive bare foot :)

It's just for looks, although I'm sure it must take at least half a second off the 0-60 right? :D

No dead pedal cover for RHD cars :( The LHD cars have a square aluminium pedal cover for the foot rest.

Looks great to me. A nice little upgrade even though no one will really see it but you.

i'd like to see the new fog lights too if you get a chance to show us those in action.

I had an S-line Q5 as a loaner a couple of weeks ago, loved the aluminum pedals so found some aftermarket ones on Amazon from a vendor called Amoco. No drill install. Took 10 minutes for the hubby to put them in. I love them.

No drill? How'd those screws go in - just self-tapping? Why not the same for the dead pedal? :nerd: There's not a whole lot behind it. They look pretty good though ... ;)

Hex wrench and self-tapping on the gas and brake after removing the OEM brake pedal pad. The footrest was screwed in with a Phillips. They're nice and snug. Certainly not necessary, but I like the look and they are very well made.

Ahhh, I just can't see the Phillips in the dead pedal pic - cool !!

Got my pedal today, all 3 are authentic Audi pedals shipped form Germany.


Total cost with shipping was $115, and it took less than a week to arrive.


installation lime is 10 minutes

You'll see elsewhere here a few posts on this - I myself got the just two with my car ($55) and added the RSQ3 deadpedal for another $15 (+$20 shipping) ... and there's at least one aftermarket kit for about half the price that looks pretty good too -

$55 for the 2 is very good, my dealear has them for $125. and all the other places where I found the 3 together were asking for at least $185.





I saw a few aftermarket pedals for as low as $20 but I prefer to use OEM parts. pluss most of he aftermarket pedal are just caps that sit in to of the original pedals

They make such a difference when you see the before and after pictures. And they really aren't even that expensive. Thanks for sharing with us.

Yup, I got my accelerator pedal (full replacement pedal) and brake pedal (only replaces the rubber cover) from my local Audi dealer for about $115, and the RSQ3 dead pedal from our very own Roger here. They do really class up the interior, you wouldn't think something in the footwell could make such a difference but when you first open the door they really pops and bring the luxury feel even deeper into the Q3. With that being said, I do feel that things like this should have come on this vehicle standard, at at least the prestige level trim.

What did you have to do to take off the dead pedal?

I bought from the same seller on ebay as you.

Just pull it out. There are not screws, just pressure pins
