This can't possibly be true is it? I have stock pads on my 325ci and the initial grab/bite is horribly weak.
I will pay whatever $$$$ need be to find me a set of pads that will "chuck" me forward in my seat with very very little brake pedal pressure.
I basically want to lightly tap the brake pedal and almost trigger the abs,.............is this even possible? What pad's will get me the closest to this goal??? help?
I'm guessing you do not have OE pads. They're incredible for performance off the track. Even on light track duty they're good.
The initial bite is just about as good as it can get. The ONLY downside to them is dust.
You have aftermarket pads because OEM are awesome. Sorry
