Re: Really poor brakes - 156 V6
I recently changed the front disks and pads on my 156 and it took a lot longer than 100 miles before they started felling any good. You could see that the pads were not initially contacting the whole width of the disks. I only replaced with standard pads and disks but they took a long time to start to work fully, although they are now way better than the originals.
Did you clean all the grease off the new disks with brake cleaner when you fitted them?
I would give them a bit longer to bed in and as you have now done 100 miles I would try some harder braking from higher speed to help the pads/disks to bed in further.
