    nah dude I work for Toyota / VW and we sell pad and disc kits all the time so cant see it being a issue just do some left foot breaking at about 15-20mph while your sill going this should brake them in a bit faster

    it's the other way around; ideally you should break in new rotors on old pads or new pads with old rotors.
