Mushy brakes...

Does anyone else's brakes feel mushy even when freshly bled?

I just put new pads/rotors on the rear and new pads on the front and the brakes still feel mushy. When the car is off the pedal seems to firm up pretty good, but when I start the car it gets all mushy again. Thoughts?

Also, I put on ceramic pads front/rear; they seem to take a while to break in. The ceramics on my Subaru were good in a few days, it has been almost a week and the braking performance is improving only slightly. I'm taking it easy as a result.

Fyi, I have 360mm D3 rotors/calipers on the front. With semi-metallic pads it would give you a head rush when hard stopping.
