What engine size is it, and what speed were you stopping from?

Brake fade is pretty common from high speeds, especially 1.6/1.8's which have solid discs.

If you're at all concerned though, you should get them inspected/tested for peace of mind...

Yep, pads, discs and brake lines. My 156 1.9 jtd can be a bit hairy at times and so was my 155 till i up graded ferrodo ds2500 pads. They are very very good
