Pictures of M-Performance Pedals, Floor Mats & Pro-Clip iPhone Holder

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Recently I bought the M-P pedals and floor mats. I like the pedals. Although, I thought about the 3D pedals that have the round rubber studs were better looking, but the dealership had these in stock. They are very easy to install. Ask the parts department to print you the install directions. You only need a cordless drill, 4.5mm & 2.8mm carbide drill bits (I think those sizes are correct), and a set multi-tip hex driver bits with ratcheted driver.




I bought the mats, too. So I've upp'd M logo count to 17 now, which I know adds significant horsepower and performance. I really wanted the plainer black rubber mats with the brown outer beige trim, but the dealership didn't have them in stock. I was sort of worried they didn't match my beige interior, but they very good looking mats. They have a nice texture.



Now a mini-review of these mats. I've had them for a week and a half. They are rubber and dirt and dust sticks to them. It shows. Worse, they are partly gray or off-white and my black sole shoes leave marks. I was annoyed last weekend when they would not wash clean. The scuff marks remained. I tried just using the Zaino soapy water left over in the bucket from earlier car wash. Then I thought, the Zaino is a very mild soap, designed not to strip off the Zaino polish. So this morning I used Dawn dish soap and they came out much cleaner.

I do wonder how they will wear over time.

Next, here are pics of my Pro-Clip for my iPhone 5. I really love it. I need it up high to keep one eye on the road. I use my iPhone and Bluetooth a lot. It's not perfect. There's no perfect place to put it that doesn't impede the vents. But, I don't want the driver's vent covered, and this placing impedes the other vent the least. Plus, I didn't want it all the way to the right out of easy reach.






Now I just need to tint and clear bra the damn car. And, I should be done.

Nice, but looks like the iPhone is in the way of the iDrive screen.

I liked the proclip mount on the E9x which slotted in next to the gear selector, but I don't think I could live with this F30 vent mount. Love the pedals and mats though.

There's no perfect place for it in terms of aesthetics, convenience and driving safety. I believe Pro-Clip make additional mounts for the center console. But, I need it up high for Waze, my music, podcasts and other apps. For me it's mostly about safety. They do sell a clip for the A-pillar left of the steering wheel, but I'm not left handed and I couldn't image how there was enough clearance with the angled windshield to get the phone into the holder.

And, it does block the screen slightly, but it's not a problem. You can see 90% of the screen.

Would you recommend getting the mats even though they scuff?

Nice pedals.

It's hard to see in those pics, but are the black in the middle rubber that sticks out over the metal?

No, there's nothing for the centre console on the F30. Its just the style you have and another which mounts to the A pillar.

Yes, I would. I had gray rubber mats for my old G35, and they scuffed like crazy and they never washed out. The checker pattern does hide scuff somewhat. But, checkout the black rubber mats with the colored trim.

Not true.

Here's my DIY. I used the following part numbers from ProclipUSA.com: 830530, 215421, 514422.

Forgive the poor lighting conditions, I was in my garage, and it's dark out! You can see where I slid up the phone to reveal the Lighting connector that is semi-permanently attached to the dock. The iPhone 5 snaps in with a perfect fit, and of course charges, streams audio as a USB device, etc.

After these pics, I actually unwrapped the Lightning cable down to where it meets the console. That part is still taped, and looks fine.

You're right. I was thinking of the E90.

You know, before I bought the ProClip, I just leaned my iPhone on the cupholder cover/tray and the panel below the stereo. My iPhone bumper has a white silicon gasket which held it in place pretty well. If you like your smartphone on the center console, I'd just buy a couple small rubber/silicon buttons and stick them to the tray to prevent your smartphone from sliding.

I'm not 100% sure what you're asking, but this is how the pedals and foot rest works.

First for the brake, you remove the old rubber cover, and insert the new rubber cover. Drill the holes for the screws, which take time because the pedel is steel. Attach the aluminum cover, which has those vertical slats cut into them. The rubber cover has rubber ridges that stick up through the slats in the aluminum cover.

The accelerator and foot rest don't work like that. They are just one piece. The foot rest attaches with tape and the accelerator pedal attaches with both tape and screw. But, both are just one single piece.
