Do you notice improved stopping with the new Brakes?
I have not driven since I came home Saturday. I went easy on the brakes the whole way home.

I have read up on bed-in procedures and plan to do that. Supposedly it takes a while before the added stopping power can be felt and before the rotors have thermally cycled enough to take the heat from a big stop. I have learned a lot about brakes this weekend (if you believe what you read on the web). I also need to consider sooner than later going to 100 Series front pads now that I have the new rotors. I had the stock pads that I put in on Saturday and had not even though to do the 100 series pads now.

I may pull the rear discs this weekend (much easier) and get them turned.
