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.
You should check your ABS sensors - maybe you bumped something loose. I doubt that your ABS needs bleeding - I have changed my front and rear pads and have had no such problem.
Have you noticed that you only get about 5Kmiles from your rear pads? I use my rear brakes quite a lot, but it seems I should be getting better mileage. I found when I put on EBC pads, the rears are wearing much better, but the fronts look like they will only go 5K.
I am trying some sintered pads I bought on Ebay. $18 shipped for a full set (both calipers) of pads.
