Just a lack of bite i suppose, needed to slam them on to get a reaction and even then the peddle had to go to the floor before i noticed the car starting to stop. Definitely not the sort of performance i was expecting as i hammered down the hill. In the GTI it feels like the rear of the car is going to come and smack you in the back of the head. The RS just dipped to the front and kept riding while i waited for something to happen.
Felt much more like Commodore brakes rather then GTI brakes. I should mention that mine is an ex Demo so theres every chance it has been flogged. But after only 2,000kms i would think they should have held up alright. Could also be the possibility that the pads weren't warm
I thought it odd as well as every review i read suggested the brakes as a strong point. Will keep you all updated
