Question What kind of pedals you prefer?

Simple question, which one you like more-big or small?
Big (BMW, Skoda) or small (Citroen, Ford).
The marques on pictures are just for example.

Small. I rest my foot under the pedal when cruise control is on usually, if I don't pull them up towards the seat to bend my knees for a bit.

Not so much the size of them, but the spacing of them.


That could be taken the wrong way.

Posted via FF Mobile I think the question is do we like traditional hanging pedals or floor mounted ones.

Big. And floor-mounted. I don't know why floor-mounted isn't common anymore. It's used almost exclusively in German and exotics. Japanese manufacturers like Nissan seem to be adding them now too (370z). Took me a while to get used to it, but it's a way more comfortable setup when you do. Now hanging pedals feel awkward for me.

I agree on the big and floor-mounted. To me they are much easier to use. But they aren't used much any more because of the problems associated with that location. Maintenance, etc is more difficult with the master cylinders located under the floor rather than on the firewall. Not to mention higher cost to build such a setup.

I have no preference, I get used to the pedal after driving a car for about 10 minutes anyways.

My buddy has an E36 M3 that I've driven, didnt really think about the pedal being different than whats on my focus. So as long as the car has three pedals, makes no difference to me.

Big and floor mounted, that's what I had in my last car and it was way more comfortable than the focus to drive. The gas pedal is one of the only things I don't like about my svt. It seems like my ankle starts to hurt after driving for a while.

Thanks. I didn't realize so much more was involved with that setup. I guess that makes sense. I can live with both setups so it's not a huge deal. As someone already mentioned it takes no more than 10 minutes to get used to it. Although for long-distance travel I think the difference in comfort is more apparent.
