    Default Calling all 1.9 CDTI Owners

    Right simple poll here to find out what is going on with the braking system.

    When the engine is ON and you are stationary can you put your foot on the brake pedal and have it go pretty much all the way to the floor? (even if it requires a little effort)

    yep does it on mine, got the 314mm brake upgrade stops really well when needed but if I sit there pushing hard on peddle it will go to the floor, but generally only little bit of pressure needed to brake

    thought on mine it was to do with it being an AUTO but seams to be on all diesels because my mates diesel Vectra does the same,
