Arrived very promptly. Good quality but the impression given that they are easy to fit and require no drilling is not exactly correct, at least in the case of my 2012 1.8 SE Coupe. The clutch and brake pedal covers are reasonably straightforward, just remove the original pedal covers and replace with the new ones. Be warned, the new ones are a tight fit and you will need to use silicone spray or a similar lubricant to help ease them into place. I found a bit of gentle levering with a small bicycle tyre lever helped as did running a narrow punch around the flange which secures them onto the pedal.
There were no pre-drilled holes in my accelerator pedal. Simply place the alloy item over the existing pedal (its a really good fit) and use the mounting holes in the alloy pedal as a template to drill the necessary holes. Secure with the small nuts and bolts provided and be sure to use the spacer on the upper (longer) nut and bolt.
The footrest is secured using the 3 self tapping screws provided. Again simply place it over the existing item and use the alloy footrest mounting holes as a template to drill three VERY SMALL holes that the self tappers can bite into.
Once fitted they look terrific. Another bonus - I think the fine throttle control e.g. when setting off is improved by fitting the alloy pedal.
