I'm having new discs and pads fitted to my 2010 1.6 zetec s on Sunday  (ferodo pads and brake engineering discs)

they've not got a specific bedding In procedure with them, how do I go about bedding them in?

is it just a case of braking very lightly for a few hundred miles?

Well just having been through this with a Racecar (on carbon pads/steel disks) I'd say that some of the recommended procedures can be a little excessive.

I think the thing that you are aiming for is to gradually build the temperature up and not get them red hot on the first few cycles. And if you do overheat them (ie have to do an emergency stop procedure or have an accident) you want to get them back cool as soon as possible and without clamping the brakes on afterwards.

I would say that because I think that it is high temps across the whole pad that you are trying to avoid that, while it might not be desirable, you can probably get away with short sharp prods at the brakes at any time, but I could be wrong.
