Put me down as another eager to know what pedal this is and if it's a plug and play replacement. I've found the SAH pedal to be almost intolerable on long trips

Yeah if there's a "better" pedal I'm wondering why SAH runs theirs? Paging Stephan? Mines adequate around town but even just the trip to SAH in Sacto starts to irritate my leg/knee.

Okay. Got pedal in hand and have the connector ordered with gold plated terminals. Pretty much have the ECU to pedal terminal wiring already figured out. We'll see if smoke comes out of that little silver box.. Laughing

Part # on the throttle itself is 1K1 721 503AS.
1k1 723 503AP looks exactly the same and so do the terminal. All fit various VW products. Audi A3 & R8, TT from 2008 - 2015. VW CC, Eos, Jetta, Passat & Rabbit from 2005 - 2015.

I'll get busy figuring out a mounting system for this new pedal asap after I go fix some Vanagon's Smile Cool Red Vanagon Lt. Blue Vanagon Brown Vanagon Green Vanagon Grey Vanagon Blue Vanagon

I don't think he owes us anything but it would be wonderful if he informed us.
Somewhere I read the newer pedals pins are wired reverse of the earlier pedal assemblies.

I hated the gas pedal too- i adjusted it as low as possible and I still found it incredibly uncomfortable. Andrew Flint installed this late model Audi/VW pedal in my van and it is much better- darn close to stock! Sorry that I don't have an exact part number!

Who is Andrew Flint? I notice that you're in the SF Bay Area. Does he have a shop here?

Thanks.
