2012 sdv6 brakes

So my brakes arent great although all pads and discs are good, when approaching a roundabout at motorway speeds the brakes feel insufficient.
Is it case of this is normal, or is it worthwhile upgrading pads or even better callipers?

It must just be a personal taste thing. I drive rapidly and have never had an issue. 2012 SDV6 HSE. Bear in mind the sheer weight of the car. I tend to drop it in S mode if in a proper hurry as the engine breaking mode is significantly better than in D mode, or occasionally use the paddles.

you could check to see if there is oil in the servo vac pipe like the old models got.

Are they brembo on the front ?

The brakes on the SDV6 are not great to be fair,
PowerfulUK do a big brake upgrade:

I also believe you can fit the TDV8 brakes with the correct caliper carriers and discs fitted. [/url]
