'05 M6 owners

Hey there, do your cars have a dead pedal (driver's foot rest) to the left of the clutch like the Pontiac brochure promises or not? Please chime in.

I have heard that some very early '05s lacked the dead pedal. I looked at a black/black M6 today and it had one. I don't know if the A4s get them or not.

Are you talking an actual pedal that matches the other three? Because mine does not have one. Just a flat spot on the floor that acts as a foot rest.

Mine does, it is a black rubber peice on the floor for your left foot. Problem is it is a tight sqeeze that to get your foot on the dad pedal it hits the clutch. They should have moved the clutch and brake pedal to the right a little which would make for beter heel toe operation and give more room to the dead pedal.

I thought they already moved the pedal over some to allow for heal and toe braking. Or was that just me imaging things. Also how is the shifter feel. I heard it has a slightly better feel to it than the 04's. Not to bash the 04's.

Depending on the shoes I'm wearing I sometimes can't fit my foot to the left of the clutch pedal very easily. Kinda have to slide it under the pedal then up into place.

But's there no black rubber piece. Wonder if I could get one from the dealer...or maybe mine is special...yea that's it!

yeah, there's a dead pedal, or more accurately, a dead raised spot on the floor. and it's a tight fit, but that's fairly normal for a sports car.

So now I'm confused. Some have them, some don't? Is it a matter of manual/auto? I double checked mine today--no black rubber/plastic piece on the floor for a dead pedal. But there is the dead "carpet" spot where a pedal should/could be.

Just to clarify, the '05 I looked at the other day had a "bump" to rest your foot on, but no actual pedal. No rubber covering or aluminum - it was a carpeted raised spot. Which is still better than my flat '04 floor.

Mine has the carpeted one I looked at the automatics and they do not have one on LS1.com there is a thread showin a pic of the Aussie Holden right hand drive that actually has the matching metal I am waiting for an answer on ordering and part number for it I will go back and find the link.

By the way it is a tight squeezzzzzz between the clutch and dead pedal
