Did you get the pedals installed yet?

I'm curious as to what you ordered since there are so many options. I imagine they look similar to the Mk4 pedals listed on their website.

I had a nice set of pedals on my BMW with a small extension on the throttle. It made things so much easier for me to heel-toe. I was just learning then and don't really have a problem with the GTI as is, but I would like some more grip on the clutch and brake.

Short of fabricating something custom, no. Raising the gas pedal is definitely the easier route to go.

What kind of shop would I go to for this type of custom fabrication? Is there a shop skilled enough to machine their own pedals and install them and cut and reweld the brake pedal at all? I seriously hate the pedals in this car so much I would probably pay a good chunk of change to fix what VW broke.

My other option would be to raise the gas pedal like you said, but then I'm too far to comfortably operate the clutch. So I would have to somehow raise the clutch engagement point. And I've had no luck getting anyone to explain how that can be done. Can I adjust the master/slave cylinders so I can raise the engagement point somehow?

I just need to know what type of drill bits do i need to get through this brake pedal? I've already broken 4 different tips.

Couldn't tell you honestly. Try a local race shop. I don't see a normal mechanic shop wanting to take that on as it sounds like a pain and is un explored territory, there is liability for the shop if it doesn't work. You're going to pay an arm and a leg for this after all the R&D that the shop will have to do. Buy a lift plate for the gas pedal and call it a day. Don't worry about raising the clutch engagement point, your right foot will learn the new distance on the gas pedal after a few days of driving.
