It is not the pads that need the breakin. It is the rotors. proper breakin coats the rotors evenly with the pad material which bonds to the rotor.

hink the ceramic pads come already "set" by a baking process, read that over the weekend on one of the makers websites. Not sure if Akebono are same, I don't remember any special process when I installed them a few years ago.

Just paid $45, I think OE from MB run about $70 or more.
