    Its to attract out of warranty vehicles back to the dealership as most in warranty vehicles will go back to dealers for servicing in case something goes wrong and the warranty doesn't pay

    There's nothing illegal about offering to work for a price.
    No one is forced to pay it.

    Reading this with interest.
    When my car was a month old i took it in re a whining from the front driver side wheel. No fault found so i learned to live with it.
    3yrs on the front right braked started groaning/moaning i could feel it through the steering wheel. only when the brakes were warm. Even on the motorway they would squeal. It stopped the moment i braked. I tried all sorts. Audi service said NFF. Discs and pads less than 20% worn. Took it to an independent who stripped it and said it just needs new front discs. The discs were quiet scoured/grooved , but not very worn. I assumed this was causing the pad to be rattled so i should just change them.
    Interestingly, i only the the car every week or two. It does nothing then a long run as a rule then nothing for a while. Abit of corrosion builds on the discs as a result, probably the cause of the scouring.

    Anyway, it has been squealing when warm for over 2 years now. At my recent service i bit the bullet and paid for new front discs and pads even though audi said they weren't needed.

    Now, it takes longer, about 2 hours on the motorway, but eventually the squeal comes back, stops immediately on braking. Starts as you pull away again. Its particularly bad when the car is heavily loaded.

    I still think its the wheel bearing, casing the brakes to wear unevenly, causing the noise. I cant prove it. 2 different audi garages tell me there is no fault with the bearing or the brake, but the ffkkker still squeals after 2 hours driving.

    I dont care anymore, as the same garage offered me a great deal and a new S6 which is arriving next month with 6pot callipers and 400mm discs instead. Hopefully no more squealing.

    Good luck with your case, the moral is, check the cheel bearings for any play or uneven movement, i think that could cause the issue.

    Been trying to get some time and get it checked.
    Could be dirt in the hub to disc contact patch, could be the hub not running true, could be the disc are actually warped, could be anything, all I know Iím paying for it if I decide to keep the car as Audi isnít interested even though the car is under 2 years old.
    Might just jack it in and move on to something else. Thereís others brands. Quite like the new e class(with all the tech options) and the new e43 has 4 matic so no more Audiís reign with the Quattro for our variable climate. I know thereís plenty of crap on the net about the Quattro vs 4matic vs xdrive but for the average joe on uk roads itís not gonna be that different between the 3 for everyday use.
    Only form of shopping I like is car shopping ;-)

    Look at the Volvo S90 or the XC60. Equipment levels leave Audi standing.

    New xc60 is really nice but canít seem to bring myself getting a Volvo, Iím too young 😄. itís not cheap if you want all the toys. Itís S6/e43 money without the performance.
