    I used a Brake Buddy about 5-6 years ago for about 2 years.

    It was bought new from TOWTAL in Stoke-on-Trent , its an impressive piece of kit although pricey .

    For my use then a 2005 Fiat Panda it was not perfect due to the brake pedal size on the car and the bracket on the brake Buddy unit , for whatever reason and much fettling I could never get the bracket to stay firmly gripping the pedal. What this resulted in was many a journey competed with No braking at all because the two had parted company!!!!!

    Overall I would rate this as an excellent product in the right application - check though that your brake pedal is suitable largish size . If you are considering one try it properly on your toad before you commit a lot of money BUT more importantly will the unit stay on your pedal .
