The brakes on BMW's new 3-Series feature a host of life-saving tricks
packed for the first time into one vehicle. They anticipate an
emergency stop and cinch the pads closer to the rotors, so they engage
faster. And because they resist fading during long descents, you can
stop quickly at the bottom. They also squeeze the calipers
intermittently in the rain to keep the pads and rotors dry and, when
stopped on hills, hold the car while you move to the accelerator.
I have a question about the last line in the blurb... does it mean that
when you are on a hill and you car has a manual tran, that the car will
not roll back when you begin to go into 1st gear?
