The one thing I've noticed from hanging around various car forums for the last 20 years, building a kit car and so on, is that you can never have a setup where the brake pedal feel suits everybody's tastes.  ;)

When I press the pedal smoothly the movement is quite long and I have a feeling of bad brakes. When I quickly release pedal and make another press the movement is much shorter and brakes are much more powerful. like the assistant worked more effectively in the first centimeters of the movement.
new discs, pads and a flush of the brake fluid should fix that

This. But only if you press the pistons home with the bleed nipples open before you bleed the fluid. Otherwise you retain enough dead fluid to make a noticeable negative difference  ;)

BTW, if buying GM pads, 9192124 are the crap "Aftermarket Specification", always try to get the OE pads 9195077

The Aftermarket TC pads are the ones I have abused, as that's what was always fitted to the Silver Bullet ;).  TBE tends to have the OE ones fitted.

The only performance difference seems to be the TC ones lack initial bite if the car has been stood several days, a problem the the OE ones don't suffer.

A few years ago, the OE ones created less dust, but that's no longer the case IME.
