New brakes break in?

I just put new rotors and pads on my 930 and was wondering if there was any specific break in procedure that may help them seat in a bit.

I just went through this exact project. Aren't they nice lookin'? I didn't even want to put on the wheels to cover them up.

Anyways, the new pads have to be seated properly with the new rotors as you know. This is done by going roughly 40-45mph and applying firm brake pressure and come to a stop quickly, but not a panic stop. Then drive some to allow the rotors and pads to cool. Then repeat a couple more times at 40-45mph. Repeat again a few times at 60mph, and 70mph allowing the brakes to cool sufficiently between stops.
