Opinion on your standard stilo brakes

As it says!

This popped up in another thread that some people find the Stilos standard brakes amazing, whilst ohers are saying they are pants.

Would be interesting to see if there is a link between owners who think they are pants and which model they drive.

So choose in the poll your opinion (close to the options) then post your model and selection

EDIT also post if you had a stilo, but like me have got rid and drive something else!

Re: Opinion on your standard stilo brakes

I think they're great stuff on my 1.2 3dr. Maybe a lighter engine improves things(?)

One or two of mates have had a drive in it though and they do comment on how good the brakes are

I no longer have one either or drive her in doors 3dr ..mine were crap when bought the car and soon set about sorting the problem out with after market discs pads and hoses..the other day here in doors drove my panda and commented that the brakes were better than her stilo's so it would seem that its hit and miss whether you have good or bad brakes on the car and rather like playing the lottery..

Re: Opinion on your standard stilo brakes

"Just right" for me.

I've found them OK with both OEM and Green stuff pads and I've never liked cars with over sensitive brakes which could be lethal in pre ABS days (cars take a long time to stop with the wheels locked )

I did notice a small improvement after a brake fluid change though.
