Hairy green toads from Mars made Peter Sperry say:

My wife's 90Q20V was always a "hard" pedal compared to anything
else we had in the garage. So it may be working correctly, and
simply be a user interface issue. Or has it changed recently?

But, if you're looking for good pads/rotors without breaking the
bank, I always suggest either the Axxis Organic pads (not the
metalmastere) or the Pagid pads, and the ATE power discs.
Good brakes all around, been on most of my cars, never a problem.
Note that neither of these will change the way the pedal feels.
