Excessive brake pedal travel on 2IS

Any suggestions on how to get that OEM pedal feel back for the brakes?
It's hella noisy and doesn't feel the same as it did when it ran on OEM pads and rotors.

So far, I've tried:

>having the whole system checked and cleaned lots of times
>resurfacing all rotors
>flushing and bleeding multiple times using different brake fluids

to no avail. The noise is still there, pedals are still spongy, and stopping power is only 30% at best. Basically it feels like all the components are nearing the end of their life, but visual inspection says otherwise.

Help?  :'( 


The OEM brake hoses might be nearing their end of life. Rubber lines also wear out. That might address the spongy feel.
