    likely not had all the storage preservation coating removed before fitment....will burn off eventually but the pads could be contaminated and need replaced as the coating is a form of oil

    Driving hard on new brakes or bedding them in and allowing some heat cycles before you go for glory?

    Now if they're EBC pads with their "brake-in" coating that's like sandpaper, you need to be extremely gentle with them for the first 200 miles or so.

    Worst case scenario; sticking calipers.

    Most likely as above though; the anti-corrosion layer oil is burning off when braking.
