    The aluminum pedals have been made exclusive to the P- club! Any other solution?

    Somebody asked an interesting question in the other thread, which I never saw answered: Are the metal pedals a stock Mercedes / Daimler-Benz element, much like the column stalks? That would certainly provide an avenue for acquiring them, if so.

    Oh yes, that dead pedal is fantastic, as are the sill protectors:

    They don't seem to have the brake and accelerator pedals. Only the dead pedal.

    That site only appears to sell the dead pedal, not the brake and accelerator pedals.

    @JakeP, does the sill protector show scuff marks? Sometimes stainless steel will show wear marks fairly readily (which is why using stainless steel for countertop surfaces in home kitchens is not a good idea, IMHO). But it sounds like you are happy with yours. How long have you had them?

    I wish someone made metal sill protectors for the Roadster. The carbon fiber ones are pretty expensive.

    The sill protectors do show scuff marks. I should have covered them with XPel before installation, like I planned to do. But the DIY sill kit I bought from XPel wasn't wide enough, so I skipped it. Too impatient!

    The brake and accelerator pedals are from Tesla service, before they stopped selling them to non-P owners.

    I should add that I have only had them for 2-3 weeks. The driver's side isn't scuffed, as I take care not to scuff it myself. They passenger side has a few scuff marks, which would have been avoided had I covered them with Xpel.

    Check out ultimate pedals. http://www.ultimatepedals.com. They made some beautiful pedals for my BMW. I am sure they can make anything you want

    Original P pedals from Tesla were 265 installed. Dead pedal was 75, non-illuminated sill covers were 150. There is an LED illuminated version for 200 or so also.

    Does the dead pedal just snap on? Does it have a decent finish?

    Finish is gorgeous, chrome on the curve/right, brushed on the face. Both the dead pedal and sill plates stick on using pre-applied 3M sticky tape. All you do is peel back the protective tape on top, then position and press!

    If you have a P can you order them for "yourself"?

    Jake, those look awesome. Did you get the LED lighted door sills? If yes, how difficult was to install them? I am not particularly handy, but would take on a minor project. On the site they mention installation is based on double-sided adhesive tape - does it work well on the sills?

    Thanks

    Tape works great on the sills, and the dead pedal. I opted for the non-illuminated sills, because the wiring was a bit more than I wanted to take on. If you have the ambient lighting option, the shiny TESLA letters reflect the downward door LED lights, and cast a TESLA reflection up onto the door...looks very cool. Do put Xpel on them if you want to prevent scratches in the finish from gritty boots.

    Aviators99, I would assume that a P owner could order those parts, but then again, I don't see why anyone wouldn't be allowed to order metal pedals. Totally at the whim of Tesla and the individual Service Center, I imagine.

    I checked with my local tesla service center and this is what I got: Tesla Service does NOT sell performance package contents (spoilers, pedals, seats etc) to non-peformance customers.

    Bummer.

    Reviving an old thread--any word on if Tesla makes an aluminum dead pedal? Or is aftermarket still the only way to go?

    Aftermarket is still the only option. Aluminum dead pedal not made by Tesla since Founders Series cars, I believe.
