Heel and toe

So my car has this moronic pedal setup. The gas pedal is right next to the transmission tunnel and it's a bit lower than the brake pedal so it's almost impossible to move your foot around to blip the throttle properly. Is my car moronic or am I moronic?

    As you can see, all pedals are on your side of the transmission tunnel, actually ideal for heel toe

    With bmws you either have to roll your foot to blip the throttle or get aluminum pedals that add more surface area to the left side of the gas pedal.

      the further you are from the doors, the better your survivability in a side impact. So BMW compromises its seating position in order to improve safety. You could try an aftermarket seat & mount to move the seating position a bit.

      I find pedal covers like this tacky so I would never do them. Not aware of anything that moves the pedal position, but the seating position in my BMW was annoying (your feet and body are angled so you feel contorted while driving)

        My e60 is like this and it's fricking annoying, and it's also a c**t to heel toe. I can only push the gas pedal in far enough with my heel to get a 500rpm blip. No wonder pedal commanders are so popular, drive by wire is aids.

    My pedal setup in my F30 BMW was very similar and it was one of the easiest for
    Me to heel toe. Mostly because the throttle pedal goes all the way to the ground so your heel and reach it. In my Honda fit it was so hard because the throttle pedal was the same shape as the brake and didn’t extend to the ground.

    All you need to do is to add a block of wood/plastic to extend the throttle pedal and it would be perfect for heel and toe.

    Yeah, that's pretty tight. I'm guessing you're pretty careful about what shoes you wear. Smallest cars I ever drove were my cousin's Fiat X1/9 and a gen1 Audi TT that I rented - with size 13 shoes, I had a hell of a time. Cutting the pedals and giving them an offset is pretty easy, but you've got nowhere to go. The damned footwell is too small. Maybe clip the right edge off the brake pedal and try to remove some interference.

    Just bend the shank of your brake pedal in towards the gas pedal so they're closer. Makes it way easier to just roll your foot. Did that on my 944 track car and it works great.

    leave it to bmw to frick something so simple up.
    do you have big man feet or little girly feet? if the former, rather than trying to literally use your heel, pivot on your heel and rotate your ankle to use the ball of your foot to blip the gas while still being able to hold the brake pedal. I wear a size 13 and that's what I have to do for every manual vehicle I drive.

    you are moronic, i used to have an e36 and it was fine

    now i have a race car and figured out what it actually means to heel-toe (it's not about being smooth and gentle)

    Your pedals are fine. In a situation where you'd actually heel and toe, you'd be pressing your brake pedal far down enough to have it line up with the gas. Sounds like you're trying to heel-toe on the streets while braking lightly.

    You are moronic. Brake with big toe, blip with rolling your ankle/pinky toe side.

    Car could be moronic. In my S10 I use the heel on the brake and toe on the gas because it fits better. If it works it works

    Anyone know where to source a nice floor mount pedal with a strong hinge? I need to upgrade from my home depot gate hinge pedal. Best I've found so far is this aftermarket Datsun pedal.

    unless you're on a track, you don't need to heel toe. Just drive the fricking car.

    You could easily do it with the side of your foot. Just press in brake pedal with left side of your foot and gas pedal with right side. This is how most people actually heel toe, despite it being called "heel toe".
