    Sounds like they need bleeding, had the same with mine today, rear caliper was seized so ended up metal on metal. Changed the discs and pads but in winding the caliper back in I went the wrong way and let a little bit of air in, bled that caliper and all is good again.

    Id put it down to the red stuff pads, they need to be warm to work properly. I've always found ebc pads to be very temperamental.
