OEM pads take some time to scrub off deposits because the pads are generally quite soft and not very abrasive. Also, in general, pads are at their most abrasive when cold to slightly warm temperatures.
Interesting. The confusing part for me was that they got better if I went easier on them and were perfect at the beginning of the next session (and even on the way home for that matter). I guess the pad transfer wore off during the remainder of the session.
