I'll be treating my '3 to a new set of drilled-on sport pedals here shortly, but want them professionally installed. Any tips as to who I should look at? (I'm uninterested in doing the job myself, and will pay to have it done professionally.)

Thanks!

I remember GreyGun used to be pretty nifty in that department ;)

I'll bet half the members here could do that for you. What do you mean by "professionally"?? You think someone in a shop is better at drilling holes in pedals? :)

Of course, they might be more willing to do it in the temperatures we've been having... heh.

If you were going to do it yourself, just go to CT and get some titanium drill bits. This shouldn't be a difficult DIY.

I don't know what the Mazda pedals are like, but I put mine on my Sunfire myself and had no issues at all.

Don't go comparing the Sunfire to the Mazda3 again. The drilling can be tricky depending on the pedals you pick. With my pedals, the holes had to be drilled very carefully because the holes are wide - leaving only millimeters between the holes and the edge of the pedal. I took my time with mine. Used a punch to get the holes right. Also the plastic accelerator is very tight.

If he'll do them for you, then for what it's worth I trust he'll do a good job.

He'll either do it proper or not at all.

Question is... will Skarbro offer to help me? ;)

i trust fellow board members a lot. reason being, they've done it to their own cars already, so they would've (hopefully) in most cases done all the research/read up for it. Also, they would treat the car with more respect.

Sorry, I didn't see the last few posts until now. I'm willing to help you out - but not until spring when it's warmer. ;)

I'll do it for a 24 of Keith's. :)

I won't get offended if you would rather have someone else do it earlier.

But... I would like to know exactly which pedals you are planning to install. Are they the same is mine?

Yes. I just haven't installed it yet because my over-sized winter mat covers the area. It's going in in the spring.

Mazda of Brampton doesn't seem to have any good stuff, and the guy behind the counter isn't very helpful either.

I got them from xenonexpert.com. I think their prices jumped up a little since I bought them.

I believe they are based in Quebec, so it probably came by Canada post.

the guy lives in montreal quebec, but when i asked him for a local pickup, he said it was shipped from US californie 'cause the factory is overthere... (maybe just an excuse to refuse for local pick up~)
