            Be sure to bench bleed it, I bench bled my MC and gravity bled all four wheels. My brakes are sweet. The next item I will upgrade is the rubber brake lines, my RS has over 260K, so the lines can't have that much more life in them

              Yeah get it fixed immediately, unless you want to rearend someone. It's cheap as dirt to get fixed too it only cost me $80 (cdn funds)

                  trust me, get it fixed, i had this same problem just a few weeks ago, and it got so bad that i needed to use my e-brake a few times untill i got it fixed at the dealership. it cost more than u want to kno, so my advice is to do it ur self

                      it isn't that hard. I did mine without even having a real manual, just the Haynes crap.

                        Ok brake master cylinder replacement complete, It was pretty easy. All it cost me was for the brake fluid, the master cylinder and that is it. about 42 bucks

                          how much of a bitch is it to bleed the lines. Figure all i had to do was bleed the lines; how much time does it take to do it PROPERLY?

                            If all 4 wheels are off, you can replace all the fluid in under an hour. That said, I tried to use valvoline synpower when I put on my SS brake lines, and never got the pedal to feel good. I flushed all that out and refilled with Castrol GTLMA, and things are much better.
