    I've had the same since I did mine. Got used to it now but it's annoying.

    1) Pedal hardness sinking to floor when constant pressure applied?
    2) Pedal hardness point rising if pedal pumped?
    I assume the fluid level is at the max level (neither above nor below) in brake fluid reservoir? If the answer to both the two questions above is "no", then I would suspect that the pedal firmness will improve once the pads have "bedded-in" after around 300 miles of general, variable conditions driving.
