Yes that is normal.. not what you were looking for? Bite is less, but smoother ..
I had to make a harsh stop, glad to report the brakes did not fall apart and stopping was completely predicatable and sufficient
However not as strong as some of you would prefer
The 528 has same size rotors front and back, really it is just sufficient to stop such a large car, however not being able to increase the rear stopping power, this weak front stopping allows the car to stop very level with no front loading/drooping as most of the braking is done with the hasher compound pads on the rear ..
So comfort, not performance at all.
