Does anyone else have brakes that squeal when cold at lowspeed?

Yes - mine are horrific at the moment. Not just low speeds either, or always when they're cold!
It didn't do it last year so I'm going to get Audi to take a look...

Audi recommend new discs and pads. Take it to a normal garage and ask them to copper grease the back of the pads. I did on both cars and all fixed now.

Okay thank, as it needs its inspection service done next week I’ll get them to have a look.
If it’s needs new discs & pads I won’t be happy as I’ve only done 3k in it since picking it up in July.

could be that they need to be used.. try an emergency stop 3 or 4 times in a row on a nice bit of quiet road, but dont actually come to a stop, release at about 10mph then floor the loud pedal again. this will cut the hard layer off the pads and clean the discs.

Yep, I've been doing that all week ;) at least it get the brakes warmed up quickly & then the noise stops.
