First impressions below, I took a conservative approach because I've not made a change like this before:

1. Pedal feel is consistent with stock
2. I can definitely slow the car down more effectively
3. Effect of #2 is that I was consistently overslowing the car based on muscle memory
4. Much easier to get ABS before everything is warmed up

Overall impressions very positive, looking forward to learning the new setup.
This is about exactly my experience after installing the smaller caliper in the rear. I did experience ice mode once and I think that was due to tires not being warm enough, was a much shorter ice mode than I've had on the stock setup and it auto corrected quickly without me having to adjust pedal pressure. I can now really work on less braking to go faster.

My setup:
CP5317 with Carbotech XP10 pads in the front
Stock AP calipers with XP8 pads in the rear.

Progressive and intuitive feel. No ice mode.
Love it!
