Interested to know how you are getting on with your brakes as my Toledo has a similar issue with soft pedal.
If at idle I sit with my foot on the pedal it will gradually depress if I keeep a little pressure on it.
Don't worry he's probably using copper grease on the pads to protect the paint !!:p
I've got a new set of Brembo Max disks waiting for a set of Ferodo DS2500 pads to arrive. Must nip down the DIY shop for some brake paint (not) :D
I'm wondering if the paint will flame enough to light the tyres ?
I got the following after trying the Powerflex one which gave terrible vibration.
This one gives very little more vibration than stock
