    this is unlikely unless you have a seized piston as when you apply the brakes the pad will be forced onto the disc. Did you thoroughly clean the the pad guides?

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    I fitted new front pads to my old A4 and they never sat flat - Apparently they are this was to stop brake squeel.... Could be the same...

    then maybe the pad guides have got a build up in them, the pad should definately fit flat onto the face of the disc.
