when i brake in my mini the front brakes feel a little lumpy! its hard to explain but they just feel un-smooth (if thats even a word?)

do all minis feel like this or do i have yet another problem with my brakes?

If you've got disc brakes on the front (post 84 usually) then it could be warped discs. That would give an odd feeling through the pedal.

also check that the bolts that hold the disc in place are tourqued up properly!if a couple have come loose then that could cause this too!
