Does anyone find that their ABS kicks in a bit too easily? I think mine does, unless it's just crap tyres (Nexens. i've never heard of them, but the garage replaced all 4 before i picked the car up when i bought it, so probably cheapo ones?) My previous car was a Pug GTI6. I thought the brakes on that were quite good. In the dry, you could quite literally stand on the pedal and it would stop without a flicker of the pedal. But in the Astra, even in the dry, too much pressure and it starts to kick in, and judder. I just think that it's letting the brakes down a little. And i don't see the point in upgrading the brakes, as then it'll just lock up easier, and the ABS will kick in quicker.
