On the 2k + models, the 6 pots were modified to have different size pistons that were supposed to give much better feel for the brakes.

It is probably not the calipers. Replacing the stock lines with stainless steel braided lines will give the brakes a firmer feel. It sounds like you just have a leak somewhere. Are you losing fluid?

If the stock brakes are working properly they are excellent.

I too thought that the stock braking was excellent until I replaced my stock rotors with EBC prolite rotors, the pads with ebc HH sintered pads, and the master cylinder/lever with a nissin unit - After the switch the incredible difference left me in disbelief :)
I guess if you're not racing then the stock ones work fine though

I found out why my brakes were so weak, i traced it down to a tiny little crack in the caliper maybe from a high speed stone down the motorway or something, got a second hand one for 40 quid not too bad.
