    A3 3.2 brakes

    when driving slow in traffic the brakes are real sharp, i try to stop slowly and just stop dead. i guess its that im still getting used to the car, just annoying

    are the brakes electronicly assisted as with the steering ?

    also when goin at slow speeds (30ish) the rev needel hovers or bounces. is this a know fault or perfectly normal ?

    Yes, same prob here esp if I haven't driven it for a while (wife's car) and my Navara's brakes are very profressive (or need a good shove!) by contrast. Our rev counter is stable tho.

    Same thing with the brakes on mine. Way too sharp at speeds less than 15 mph.
