I'm sick of the ugly brake and gas pedal in my Regal. Thinking of getting brushed aluminum or something different. Might even paint the set black or something.

Rice???

Brushed aluminum would look good.

Razo makes some pretty sick pedals, although I'm not sure if ones like this would fit the style of the Regal:

They make some regular brushed metal ones too, and while they look nice they do get pricey: LINK

I've noticed that those are mostly made for the import crowd so there could be some fitment issues due to differing pedal designs. Also aluminum could be more slippery than the stock rubber covers so you have to be careful of your footing till you got used to it. That said I think they would look really good as long as you have other aluminum accent pieces to match it to.

Yes, be careful. Most sale listings say "fits all Japanese, most domestic, and selected european models." The Regal is common enough, but try to get measurements for everything and find out how they mount.

Rice. The pedals are more than enough out of sight. But it's your car and if you have money burning a hole in your pocket I understand that. Isn't there something more expensive and worthwhile you'd rather save up for?

Why don't you make it a poll?

I have to agree with Derek, and really, who ever sees the pedals? It is you're car though.

Yeah those Razo ones look a little crazy. I could have sworn they made some tasteful aluminum ones for GPs a while back...

After more thought, I might just take the ones I have now and clean them really nice. That will probably make me happy. haha

Yeah, RICE! Anything listed as a "pedal" that clips over the existing real pedal is ghetto IMO. They look like something someone would add to their Honda..... rolleyes

Those Wilwood's are nice....... wink

Those are definitely nice. Can't really justify putting a cover over pedals on my car. That sounds really stupid.

Thanks for steering me in the right direction fellas.

The original question was: What do you guys think about brushed aluminum pedals.

To be honest, I don't care for them in the Riv but I can't speak for any other car, because I don't own one or have access to another car that I think they would look good in.

It is in the eye of the beholder.

All RICE.!!!!!!!!

Personally, I just wanted the "chrome" trim from the '95's pedals... But by 2005, they'd discontinued them.
In the interval, however, I realize that the only time I notice them is when I'm working under the dash! rolleyes
