I really like the long accelerator pedals: http://www.turnermotorsport.com/image/interior/misc_pedals_bmw_manual_smg_lg.jpg... found in most cars compared with the skinny ones: http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/image.php?type=T&id=16789 ... When were the long style pedals first introduced into cars? Iv noticed most if not all mercedes have them and BMW's and some VW's. Does anyone know a brief history of these type pedals? Can the vauxhall corsa which has the pedals like on the second link posted above be changed to the new accelerator pedals (first link) Thanks.
