Exactly what I meant Noel, I'm so used to driving the Scooby with it's Brembo's and braided hoses that I may well have lost the idea of a normal pedal ffeel.

In fact, I drove the Scenic to work again today and again the brakes work fine, the reservoir level is fine and they aren't actually as spongy as I first thought they were!

The hiss I mentioned ain't no leak as far as I can tell, in fact I think it's probably quite normal now having driven a 2011 Movano van today which hisses the same when depressing the brakes, most likely just the fluid movement

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
