anybody notice that their brakes take a little time to "warm up" when you first start the day. when my car has been parked for a while and i start driving, that first stop always seems to require more force on the pedal. maybe the pads just need braking in. i only have 700 miles on my MSM.

Nope, that's how it's supposed to be. Pretty normal especially considering that the IS' brakes were made for hard stops (meaning they can handle more heat, but that they need SOME heat to be able to work effectively). Are the stock pads organic or semi-metallic?
