Yeah, I understand. Spongy pedal most certainly means air in the lines.

Do you have ABS? Special procedure for bleeding with ABS. Also non-intuitive bleeding order, see pic.

I did the pads on my now-retired '04 back in March and remember the pedal feeling a bit mushy but once the pads seated properly and wore in, the sponginess went away. I did not replace the rotors, however so I don't know if that has had an effect on yours. How many kilometers have you gone since the pad change?

with the pison compressed, and the caliper mounted on the pins, do the caliper body move freely back and forth, is 1 of the slide pin stuck ??

This was a real concern for a few of us when we discover that if slides did not move freely, the caliper had to travel farther sideways until it gripped rotor with pad pressure.. Both them pins need to move freely in the mount bracket.
