Hi I just changed my front rotors, pads (simple job)and the brakes seem to be working fine except for a slight problem w/ brake pressure, maybe i compressed the calipers too much? They seem like i need to stomp the pad to the floor to get them to really go. Please help anyone, my $3000 535i is almost in good running condition, after a driveshaft, transmission output shaft seal, and new front brakes, now for a paintjob and it will be looking good. The 10 hours plus in the garage under a car lately have made me JUST WANT IT TO RUN RIGHT!!! Thanks for the help,
