Thoughts ?

Brakes appear to be fine although it appears like the ABS is trying to kick in when I brake and are coming to a stop. I say appears since it could be the new tires I fitted which have a much more aggressive tread pattern so the 'judder' I am feeling may just be the tires.

With ABS brakes when youve bled them you need to get the air out using the diagnostic software. More than likely that just needs doing after youve pushed the pistons in.
