No. The feel of the brake is quite soft, even compare with my old 2009 A4. But if brake hard, the stopping power is much better.

Have a talk with BMW sales last week and the brake discs can be "upgraded" to M-perf version without any extra modification. Want to know if there's any performance gain.... The cost is $1500USD which is more affordable compared with the complete M-perf brake kit.

Mostly cosmetic for bigger brake look. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

This sounds quite weird to me as I also have the M Sport brakes and the initial bite is pretty good. I certainly don't think the brake feel is soft at all. It definitely is not super stiff though.

I hope there's nothing wrong with my particular sample. Also the brake start to have squeaks everytime I'm footing it.
