Nope, you might want to contact SHM and ask what they fitted? Pretty sure it will be the DS2500's

Here is a little running in procedure I picked up along the way, follow this and you will get the best out of your pads/disks:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Running-in procedure - Brakes

The purpose of the running-in procedure is to improve the braking efficiency. It is important to gradually increase the speed and braking pressure on the brake discs and pads, as heavy braking will allow the disc to increase in temperature too quickly and may cause a thermal shock to the disc material resulting in brake judder (warped discs). Please follow the running in procedure below to minimize potential brake judder and increase braking efficiency. Procedure A needs to be completed by the technician at PDI, then procedure B by the customer. Both procedures need to be carried out if new discs are fitted or if they have been skimmed.

A. Running in brake procedure at PDI for technicians.

Steps Brake pressure, % Applied, Speed Application
1 Light braking 20-30% 30-0mph 2-3 times
2 Light to medium braking 30-50% 50-0mph 2-3 times
3 Medium braking 50-70% 60-0mph 2-3 times
4 Hard braking 70-90% 70-0mph 2-3 times
5 Very light braking (2 miles cooling down) 0-15% - -

Note Total road test distance approximately 5 miles (1 mile/step)

B. Running in procedure for customer.

Steps Brake pressure, % Applied, Speed Application

1 Light braking 20-30% 30-0mph 4-5 times
2 Light to medium braking 30-50% 50-0mph 4-5 times
3 Medium braking 50-70% 60-0mph 4-5 times
4 Hard braking 70-90% 70-0mph 4-5 times
5 Very light braking (10 miles cooling down) 0-15% - -

Note Total road test distance approximately 25 to 50 miles (5-10miles/step)

Note: All the information above is a guide and needs to be applied where possible. The aim
is to slowly increase the temperature in the disc and pad over the distance stated above, then allow the disc and pad to cool down slowly and evenly. It is important after braking do not hold the vehicle stationary by using the brake pedal as this will allow part of the disc to cool down at a different rate, possibly causing brake judder.

Look further down the page in the link, the letter on the end of the FRP3067 indicates the compound ie R, H, M :

DS3000 (R)
DS2500 (H)
DS3000+03 (M)

The Ferodo codes for DS2500's on a V/VI are FCP1334 (front)

if you check the dimensions of the two pads you will see that the Subaru ones are the same length and height and only difference is they are a bit thinner. Should be fine to fit I reckon.
