Re: FAO DS2500 users
Well I've just been out to bed them in. Did about 15 50% applications over 3-4 seconds from 90mph to about 40. Then thought I'd try stopping from 80-0 for a set of lights.
Rolled up to the lights and a cloud of dust rose from the wheels. "hmm" I thought. Then I noticed the smell... and oh my god my brakes are on fire! I had 2 plumes of black smoke coming from the wheel arches! It's a good thing the lights changed, managed to pull away and drive gently until they'd cooled down a bit.
Anyway, carried on doing the gradual braking and now they seem ok. Only marginally better than the old pads though I have to say, but my pedal is still spongy so I think my brake fluid has had it and/or needs bleeding.
