5.1 should have a fairly decent boiling point, so you must have boiled the pads - good work!

Remind me where the road is, i think i need to have a look!?

The quickest way is to use some sort of 'one man' bleed system. Either use something like Eezibleed or a vacuum bleeder. Don't open all the bleed nipples at one go. Start with the ones furthest from the master cylinder i.e O/S Rear, N/S Rear, O/S Front, N/S Front.

Smoking brakes looks like bedding in to me. Anyway, I was a bit dissapointed at Spa as my new yellows were fading quickly, in the wet even. I thought all that hispeed autobahn braking had them bedded in, but I was wrong. They bed in on Spa! After Spa, at Nurburgring, they could take ANY hammering. cool Very impressive.

That's quite encouraging, because I felt my brand new yellows would be better than they were at Spa, though they did improve - guess they are still bedding in ?

I have yellowstuff on my 20V NA and they were brilliant at Spa. I had a competitive edge when it came to corners as I was able to brake really late and hard thumb

My thoughts on the yellowstuff's:

+ Keeps the wheels clean, and the dust is easy to clean - very nice.
+ Works well cold
- Wear out very quick
- Spongy feel when hot

Fitted in june.
Pic of the fronts after Spa (light use), Nürburgring and Mantorp track day:

The rears looked similar, ca 4-5mm left. New pads coming up again then! I think back to Carbotech, Pagid or Ferodo.
