    I didn't think much about my pedals until I saw a Performance 3 in person then I was jealous. They weren't too pricey, so I installed a set of these pedal covers today and I'm pretty pleased. https://amzn.to/2MJmmaj

    They were a bit of a pain to install, but doable with a little patience.

    Yeah, they look good. I hope they install easier with the white interior ;)

    With the top fit did you remove the accelerator pedal or go over it? I have a set coming in today.

    It goes over the accelerator pedal.

    I want ones that look like the one's that Tesla supplies. Surely they will come to the Tesla store or someone will do a better job cloning them.

    I agree the Tesla ones are a bit better looking, but as of right now they cost $5k (with other things of course).

    Here's a short installation video for the Topfits if anyone is interested:

    I got these from Aliexpress before my car arrived and they have worked perfectly fine the past month I've had them on my Model 3. Shipping took at least 2 weeks though coming from China, hope it helps! (1st post). :)

    it's funny, i would never have even considered getting pedal covers despite doing this back in my ricer days. With that being said, after trying out RPM Tesla's version, I can say it's not entirely cosmetic. It feels different, also. It's not life changing, but if you could score a good deal on them ($20 or less), then I wouldn't say it's a total waste of money.

    I got the RPM Tesla ones and don’t like them (will see if I can return them). The brake pedal is huge, way wider than the stock one. Clearly not designed for this particular car (even though in the installation video they say they designed it that way on purpose so you could move it around - you have to be kidding me). Save your money and buy cheap ones on Amazon until someone comes out with ones that look exactly like the OEM M3 Performance ones.

    I have the Top Fit pedals and they are fantastic. Took some strength and patience to put them on, but they have been 100% solid since then.

    I stay away from anything RPM Tesla.

    I have the topfit ones too, stuck with that brand since they get good reviews. Install was easy for me. I paid a little too much but ended up getting them before I got my model 3 hah.

    I have the Topfit ones for S/X. Love the extra look it gives.

    Was an easy install for me. Brake pedal cover has to be removed but the accelerator goes on top of old one.

    The brake pedal is slightly wider then OEM.

    Does anyone have a picture of the OEM left footrest on a Performance Model 3? Just wondering whether the left footrest is aluminum on the performance version, or just the same back rubber thing as on the non-performance versions.
