foot brake

does anybody else hate the foot brake on the tl...its annoying, feels like a domestic vehicle instead of an import...plus i dont think it performs as well because of the constant jerk after you take your foot off of the normal brake.

i prefer the normal handbrake rested on the center console somewhere

i like the current center console in the tl but i wish somehow a handbrake could be incorporated within there.

Actually, I like foot brake better than hand brake. Most of luxury vehicles have foot brake, like Lexus, MB, BMW's.

well i think it's a trend that larger cars are having foot brake rather than hand brake, just like what songoku said, unless you get a stick shift. i prefer hand brake more too, mainly coz' i would be able to do more stunts with it. but in general it doesn't really matter.

however i would like to see a little redesign on the foot brake though. ours now, you press on it to engage, and press again to let go. this is not as convinient and sometimes misleading. ilike the design of the lexus gs where you press it to engage, and there is another handle to pull (on the left side of the steering wheel) to let go

Save for the 7 series, all the bmw's have hand brakes. It's better for enthusiast driving. DRIFTING RULES!
