Default EBC Brakes are on

I just got back from getting my EBC GD series sport rotors installed. They are the blind drilled and slotted rotors front and rear. The pads I used were the 7000 Greenstuff Supreme pads for the front and I used the 6000 Greenstuff pads for the rear. I only have but a few miles on them, they seem to stop a heck of a lot better than the stock brakes which had almost 59,000 miles on them. EBC says they will reach their full potential in about 1,000 miles after proper urban "bed in". I will have to give you all an update how they are working after I get some miles on them. I have included some pics. Hope they load up. These were taken after the black "break-in" coating on the rotors came off.

Thanks guys! I have not had any major noise issues that I have noticed. EBC says they could possibly have some wind noise because they are the sport rotors, I was on the highway and did not notice any other "wind" related noise and it is kind of windy here today. They do squeal a bit at a slow stop,nothing major, but that should go away after 500-1000 miles of urban driving according to EBC. They say they do not reach their full potential untill the mileage listed above after they are fully bedded in. I bought everything through Summit Racing online. I can't wait to see how well they perform after putting some mileage on them.

Without a doubt my next mod. Also when changing rotors/pads, maybe a good time to put a coat of silver or black caliper paint on?
