Brake not as good as BMW

OK. I replaced the all brake pads from 4 corners, front rotors and bleed the system with dot 4 fluid. The brake is still soft as compare to my 92
BMW 525 or Jaguar XJS. It brakes fine but it just a bit soft. Is this just how w124 brake system designed?

Next, I might replace the 17 years old brake lines.

If viagra can solve the brake problem, I'll add some in since I have some left over.

OK. I bled the front brakes first and then the rear brakes. Does bleeding sequence matter? I use Motive brake bleeder.
Thanks for the correct instruction guys. I bled in the exact opposite way (the nearest first). :p
