156 CF2 and CF3 brake differences?
I picked up my latest 156 yesterday which is a CF2, the day before I test drove a 156 which was a CF3
One thing that I noticed (Other than the CF2 being quicker and sounding better) was that the CF3 cars brakes seemed a lot more servoed than the ones on my CF2
The CF2 needing a good shove on the pedal to stop in a hurry.
Were there any mechanical differences in the braking systems or could it be down to different pads or something else?
I prefer the brakes to need a good shove providing the car stops, but the CF3 cars brakes were almost like those found on a Citroen in that the slightest touch would stand the car on its nose.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
