Suggest you go right back to the dealer and demand they replace them with the same new formulation pads. As someone else suggested, they clearly replaced your pads with older stock. The difference is not minor, it is night and day.
Night and day is right! I am going to email my SA and ask him t research it more.
Thanks for confirming my thoughts on the matter.
