    Best method for bedding-in brakes

    Right, so I just got a little curious as to whether there is any truth to this. They seem to be motorsport-orientated and thought it might apply to street cars as well. Or is the whole thing utter tosh? After having had new discs and pads, it took around 300 miles of normal driving (I'm...
