Interestingly, the Parts guy at my local dealer said today that not using the matched pads can produce undesired results like that. His suggestion was to wait until the standard pad are no longer manufactured then go to a third party. I assume this is a bit extreme but I really don't want noisy brakes nor brakes that etch the rotor and cause a rotor replacement. I've lived that world on my S4 when I put on AP Racing brakes. They'd stop on a dime. Insane. But they screeched so loudly people would make scowling looks when I parked downtown.
