M Performance brakes - pad break in period/procedure

Hey guys,

I just had the dealership put on my m performance brake kit, the service adviser said to use little brake pressure for the first 700miles. This is a bit contradictory to what I have done so far with ALL my cars.

Any idea what's the story behind it? My braking performance is horrible right now, in fact I barely stopped on the way out of the dealership

PS for reference I have always bedded in the pads by doing multiple runs from 40,60,80 and hitting the brakes fairly hard until the car reached 5-10mph.

Tom

Follow the dealer break in procedure. Just make sure they coded the brakes. I had mine installed at the dealer and they forgot to code the bigger rotor size. Performance will improve once they gradually bed.
