    Hi all. I love my Type-S but I feel the brakes let it down a bit.
    They work ok but I feel they lack a little bite. Its just needs a bit more
    peddle pressure than I would like. Suggestions please.
    Do performance pads make much difference?
    Have I got to go as far as disc change?

    Discs and pads are ok but not sure on the fluid. Will have a look in the service record. :Niceone:

    Brake fluid is rarely changed unless specified by the owner. It should be done every two to three years.

    What colour is the brake fluid in the res when you take the cap off? A dark golden colour or light yellow

    It looks light in colour but cannot find a record of it ever being changed.
    Will have it done at the next service. :salute:
