brake problem

I had my 2008 Roadster detailed and when I got it back the brakes no longer work properly. If I press really hard on the pedal I can slow the car down, and I don't know if it is a hydraulic problem or something else. The detailers were oblivious. Any suggestions as to what they might have accidentally done to create the problem?

Brake assistance failed? Don’t know how exactly it works, I would guess either a connection is loose or not reconnected properly, or a puncture in the vacuum line.

Service Center should be able to fix it.

We own both a detailing company and a Roadster Sport 2.0...
Every time we give it a good wash we have the same issue with the brakes, it wears of after some driving but indeed, carefull on those first kms/miles until you feel the brakes working 'as usual' again..

The brakes never were 100% good tho... We're still considering an aftermarket upgrade to stop this monster the way you need to...
