IS-F gas pedal info

I was in for my 15k mile service yesterday and specifically asked my service adviser about the whole gas pedal fiasco going on right now. As many of you know we IS-F owners as well as the ISX50 owners were sent a letter telling us to remove our floor mats. After speaking to him, the floor mats are not the problem, it is actually the brake pedal. The ES gas pedal fix is already being implemented, and he told me that since the IS-F has an aluminum single peice brake pedal, it would take a little longer for the fix to come out. What they actually will be doing is create an extended gas pedal, which will get rid of the whole "floor mat causing the gas pedal to stick" issue. So just thought I'd give the community the heads up. When the fix is out, they will again be sending out letters to notify us. :cool:

I just bought a F and had a pre-purchase inspection done at Sewell Lexus in Texas....they did the pedal recall and replaced the rear view mirror (i mentioned that TSB) while they had the car in for the inspection.

I left the service advisor a voicemail telling her not to do the pedal recall but she said they had already done it by the time she got my message?

Is it really that bad?? Now I'm worried I'm gonna hate it. I'm having the car shipped to me so I won't actually see it in person for a few days.

PS: can someone who hasn't had the recall done post a pic of the pedal and also someone who had it done post a pic so we can see exactly what the difference is??
what are your guys thoughts?
The Lexus dealership did this recall (along with the mirror TSB) during my pre-purchase inspection so I didn't really have a choice and I can't compare the feeling between old and new.

I will say that I really don't think it's a big deal. I have no issues using the gas pedal and the car is still a rocket. I don't do street racing, burnouts, or any of that stuff so I can't speak to if the ECU upgrade would have a impact on that or not but from what I've read here it seems like you can still do that stuff even with the upgrade.
