FWIW, when I spoke with Carbotech technical support on the phone some time ago, they told me their compound was "compatible" with the OEM compound and that it was not necessary to scrub the rotors prior to switching back and forth between OEM and their pads. They did recommend the bed in. Honestly, I never really performed it after forgetting to bed them in once and not noticing any difference. From then on, I just put them on, drove to the track, and never had problems of any kind with XP10 and XP12 compounds.
