    Default Strange sensation under braking

    Guys,

    When I press the brakes, not a little dab, just propper slowing down, the car feels like it judders.

    At the start I tought I was in too high a gear(not being used to the car and all that)but this evening i came to the conclusion that it is deffo the brakes....any idea's what it could be?

    Discs are probably warped mate - happens if your foot is kept on the brakes after heavy braking and they don't cool down evenly...
