idiot on road, need cheap upgrade on brakes for a basic A3
last Wednessday I was on my way to an exam, when approaching a big roundabout about 500 yard away, there was a slow car in my lane. so I was following him about 5-10 car length behind. the twat suddenly brake very very hard . catch me out of blue. literally I checked my side mirror and looked back, the car was right in my nose.
so I had to kick the brake to the floor mat. when I was still in shock, the twat gave me a V sign and drove away.
my A3 is a 2006 basic 1.6, changed front tyres a couple month ago so plenty of grip, the ABS did not kick in. the brakes just not pwerful at all!
ordered a new TT for delivery in Spetember, so not going to spend a lot on the A3.
I am looking at replacing the OEM brake pads, will that make a big difference ?
