    Default my brakes are pants!

    as above the brakes on my sri cdti seem to suffer from terrible fade when the cars driven hard, has anyone else noticed this? is there a cheap "fix" to this problem as it can get a bit scary when they fade, are harder pads better for example

    I agree with what you say here mate, i have never been that happy with my brakes since buying it about 8 months ago. Not sure if i have a fault or they are all pants it seems very inconsistant one minute they have a nice feel, next very spongy and sometimes you can feel a slight scraping through the pedal like a stone is trapped.

    Think i will have to do the upgrade hopefully will have a few ££'s in a couple of months.
