    Holy hell, $400 for the set. I hope they're actually metal instead of chrome-look plastic.

    Mine has them in the front but not the back and for $200, it will remain that way!

    AO, I don't believe any trim level gets those inserts now but, Perf should be a candidate. The Design Studio doesn't seem to have any mention of this, yet.

    Yeah, we early ones definitely got lucky with these. $400 is a mighty high price for something so non-functional but, I guess there are folks out there who may be interested all the same.

    Every time another piece like this comes out my Sig-Angst dissipates a tiny bit more....

    Is this a bad time to mention that early non-Sig cars got it too? :smile:

    Your service center can order the foot pedals for you. $250 for the set.

    Yep - $125 each. Cheaper than getting a P85 :)

    True. Honestly, I know they're down there, but I can't say I've ever even noticed them. They sit pretty far back, and the door opening is small on account of that giant side sill.

    Still, it's nice that they'll at least do that for you, even if the price is kind of absurd. I think it's pretty cool they offer these kind of parts piecemeal or as retrofits.

    These parts are chrome-looking plastic on my car, made before they switched to black plastic. (My car looks just like the picture.) Sounds like what they're selling is actual metal, though.

    Perhaps not too bad a price, considering it includes installation. I wonder what it costs to order these without installation?

    Anyone know how they install, do they just glue on top of the plastic trim or do you get new plastic with the trim fitted into the plastic?

    This is what is in the Signature cars, I believe.

    P 1845 came with these, December 2012. Metal chrome, not plastic.

    I'll have to check again, I guess. Looks metal, but I was pretty sure it was actually plastic.
