I'm considering sourcing better pads and tires... Just not sure if I want to make that investment as it's a lease.

It also doesn't help that the brake pedal doesn't give you much power in the first few inches of travel... You really have to step hard on it. That's something I need to get used to but ultimately I think it's still inadequate

Edit: my buddy who is in the parts biz said he has some clients who have complained about the same thing and he is procuring some European pads for them... I'll have to check with him on what the feedback was. He also said that he suspects the suspension tuning impacts the brake performance
