When i go to brake and at motorway speeds (70, 80, 90, etc) i get juddering, and it feels like the abs is kicking in.

Iv had this before about 5k miles ago and it was brake judder so i had brand new bosch pads and new discs fitted.

could this happen again so soon?

I've had this 3 times in the last year, with braking at any speed.

First time (March 2010 I think) the front disks were warped. Original disks on 90k miles so got them replaced, this cured it.

Until, June / July 2010, the juddering came back. This time it was the front bushes so got them replaced and it cured it again.

December 2010, the judering came back, it was the disks again. Took it back to the garage and they replaced the disks free of charge as there must have been a fault in the disks.

I had this, but u brought some discs and pads from Eurocar parts think they where the cheapo ones (i was buying 312mm discs) and had the problem, got rid then changed to mintext discs and pads from LCP then been fine ever since!

i had the pads and discs change about 6months ago, i think it had more to do with not bedding them in properly.
