No argument, I agree, but for OEM or ostensibly equivalent pads installed on fresh rotors, I would expect safe braking performance in normal conditions immediately, and no untoward effects from a lack of hard bedding; within a couple-three hundred miles of normal use, they should be at maximum performance, whatever that may be. Fade after a few miles of light or moderate braking downhill sounds no good to me.

I have a little less than a half inch left on mine and I'm taking them to Palmer MSP for a track night later this month. I have some good-ass brakes right now but curious to see what happens with another cumulative hour of hard use.
