Sticky Brera brakes in reverse?? (Am I normal?)

I have a newly acquired Brera and have only covered a couple of hundred miles. I have noticed when reversing (say out of drive way or parking space) that the brakes seem to stick - the car does not coast back but comes to a firm stop at slow speed. This does not happen going forward - is this a feature of Breras or is it something to do with the hill hold? This happens when I am on a completly flat road btw.Thanks.

Various Alfa's

sounds like your brakes are binding abit, should roll forward of back on a slight incline with no effort.

Sound like they are binding - but why only in reverse?
