    it's possible that you have air/water in your brake lines or that your brakes are just too hot right now (which leads to temporary brake fade). park up the car and check it again in the morning if they still feel the smae way you shoudl have the brakes bled and filled with new fluid.

    if the problem is gone it would mean that they were just too hot.

    don't check the fluid level, it can be decieving. take hte car to a good mechanic and get eh brake fluid bled,.. it's likely that you have air or water in the lines.

    you shoudl also check to see the condition of you pads, it's possible that they wore out a little to much after the braking you did.

    After heavy braking you should allow the brake to cool properly by driving normal otherwise the rotors are deformed and get warpped. This feels like a pulse in the brakes.

    good point, i though tbaout mentioning it earlier because alot of people in PK throw water on theor brakes to cool them down (specially on the way up and down from murree).

    Then I think we should have some hardened metal if water cooling is done properly, lol!

    Sir good point, but quenching is usually done more systematically than throwing a oily bucket of dirty room temperature water on 50% of the brakes,.. LOL!!
