Brakes are in the process of being bed in per EBC instructions using their "super ultimate break in compound" which is the first thin layer of pad on the EBC red stuff. Takes about 300 miles of easy braking to bed.

rotors were high quality EBC black dash rotors (on rear front rotors did not fit, i found out the hard way), i did not think they that they would need machining prior to install, they were wiped down and cleaned but that it is.

i will attempt to get a video/sound

i can say tho that the intensity has decreased since new rotors were installed, i check old rotors for pitting to see if i could find abnormal metal on metal contact and their was nothing that i could see with the naked eye
