I had the Porsche brake kit put on my TDI Quattro, and lets just I'm really disappointed. The kit comprises of Porsche Boxster callipers and TT disks, the pads come with the kit, but I don’t know what they are.
My thoughts at this moment are that it has been a complete waste of money [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]
They are no better than what was already on there, and just to compound my misery there is a significant judder under breaking, it can be felt through the pedal and steering wheel. It is very un-nerving and gives me no confidence at all in there capability, which when your talking about breaks is a really bad thing. On my previous A3 I just did a disk and pad upgrade and the results were better than this.
I have had the car back to the garage twice, stripped them down, checked them and reassembled them, there is nothing physically wrong with them, but they do agree the feel ‘different’. Apparently TT owners have mod done frequently without problem, which is of little consolation to me. The garage has intimated that pad upgrade may be required but am I wrong in thinking that this kit should really be right from the start?
Has anyone got any experience of this type of problem, any suggestions, anyone recommend a break specialist that may be able to help? Last question, real shot in the dark, but does the fact my car has a diesel engine have any possible effect [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
