Do you have Type M pads and SD rotors to suit a 3.0R? (fronts)

Is it considered acceptable to run this kind of setup on the front but stock rotors & pads on the rear?

I've got the Dixcel type M pads with new slotted DBA rotors all round and they squeal really bad when reversing? is this normal? (kinda embarrassing when parallel parking) I dont drive the car much and Ive been told that they may be glazed over?? and that I should give the brakes a work out to reduce the squealing? any ideas?

cheers

Thats normal with alot of aftermarket pads, the pad material is applied in a direction so that they don't squeal when driving forward.
Not a soobi anymore, but still slightly dirty

I have the same combo of pads and rotors and they don't squeal at all.

Is this a Brembo caliper peculiarity maybe?
