E36k224 is an unknown quantity at this point
my brakes seem very weak

I have to push the pedal down pretty hard to come to a stop
One mechanic said I needed new brakes and rotors

since its costly i had les schwaub do a free brake check

the guy said the brakes look fairly good and rotors too
he said probably good for another 15000 miles

he recommended bleeding the brakes

so i bled the brakes
they still suck

was he wrong and they need to be replaced
ps there is brake fluid! i checked

I have to push mine in pretty far also if I want to stop semi-hard, I think it is normal?
