    RS3 Issues

    Hello All, picking up my first ever Audi at the weekend a brand new RS3 are there any issues I need to look out for? Is the squeaky brakes still an issue and is this on all of them? Thanks

    Rs3kel is right...

    I believe it inevitable that by the time you get to 850 to 1500 miles you'll be getting (seriously loud) brake squeal from 5 to 0mph; that's the pattern that's emerging.

    I've a 'temporary-fix' that's working for me and for those who've applied it, so all is not lost.

    However, and as Rs3kel implies, Audi UK have now acknowledged the issue (Stafford Audi certainly know - talk to me G'), and I'm assured a permanent 'fix' will be provided by Audi in due course.

    See: "Finally-the brakes fix is out...." posts #66 and #72
