I think mine feel the same way mistople. It's not abnormal. In fact, even the Evo X Brembo brakes felt kind of like that. It's almost a sticky feeling. I ordered some Endless pads and fluid so we'll...

My friend still has one that was never maintained outside of occasional oil changes. I was shocked that it was still running well for how many miles of neglect it had.

Yeah, I had read that too which is disappointing. So basically it can only be selected when stopped but it can still be seen while driving? Or is it just a log that records previous g-force?

Good find! I will add this but Denso definitely still played a part (as their logo is on these parts). Sometimes it's tricky because a part can be a multi-company collaboration!
