    I had some new pads fitted at the weekend, professionally although not at the stealers. They have used Feredo pads. Having looked through the wheel I've noticed that not all the pad is in contact with the disk - As you look at the wheel, just the bottom section of the pad makes contact ? The pads look like they have a slight curve to them. Does this sound normal, will they be flush when the pads "bed in" The brakes seem very very good, stopping power is excellent compared to how they were. Any advice would be appreciated.
