    Question Favour

    Can someone post a pic of their rear brake disc so I can relate it to mine, if poss one where a good few thousand miles have been done. I have spoke to Audi CS today and a tech and they say its normal just need too see if others are the same.

    Cheers in advance for any help.

    Cheers its not a lip as such it's an inch of rust all the way round the rear disc as the pad doesn't touch that part of the disc so Audi say.

    It might be easier if you post a pic of yours and then we can advise whether it's normal.

    My rear discs seem to be wearing the same as any of the other cars I've owned. The pad is making contact with the whole face of the disc. It's currently on 7000 miles.

    Just out of curiosity, have you used an acidic wheel cleaner on the car?
