2002 BMW 316 Repair Question
Braking failed. intermittent problem 316i compact
Such symptoms indicates the master cylinder is the most likely cause.
If the component is faulty, which is more important, £200 or your life? Vehicle is 10 years old and if the master cylinder is still good, it should also be due for repair/replacement if there are any brake related problems.
Hold pressure on brake pedal if it slowly goes to floor then yes replace master. If it was me would replace or buy more life insurance

Buying more insurance would only benefit others, lol.
Thanks for your replies. I do have life insurance (LOL) but I guess you have told me what I already was thinking - Get new master cylinder. Car passed its MOT yesterday and was told the brakes were fine !!!

It can be fine now but it won't be for long if the master cylinder is failing.
