[V8] Gas Pedal

Very common.  What I've done is to drill a hole through the outside base of
the pedal cover, then through the actual pedal arm, and insert a piece of
wire (mongo paper clip) to remount the cover.  The upper part of the
accelerator cover has a small spring to allow push it away (at the top) from
the pedal arm, pivoting on the paper clip you've just installed.  This 2
minute repair job (ok, five if you've gotta find the drill and insert a bit,
pull out the extension cord, ...) has lasted over 30k miles no problem.  That
said, a more elegant solution is a set of adjustable pedal covers that allows
heel and toe...  someone recently purchased these for their S4/S6; don't
recall who (Frank Amoroso?), I think someone on the NA20v list also got them
for their coupe.
