They work OK and have always passed the MoT but they just don't seem anywhere near as good as modern brakes.  Over the last few years I have been driving  a Transit Connect van and the brakes on that are so sharp and light it would stop on a sixpence as they used to say.  I'm not expecting that sort of performance but are there specialists companies who will asses brakes?  My local garage is very good but they say there is no problem as it passes the MoT.  Any thoughts/advise please?

standard upgrades are common, bigger brakes or  better pads and drilled and grooved discs along with braided hose lines will all improve this and should be easy to find on ebay/internet
