    LIST ONLY for Owners/Cars suffering brake squeal

    As the post "Owners with - brake squeal - please register your frustrations HERE!" has now reached 381-posts it seems to me that we are losing sight, and have maybe diverted away from, of it's original purpose i.e., to 'list' owners/cars suffering brake squeal.

    Having written previously to all owners to provide me and/or Elton121272 with individual record of brake-squeal, I've a total of only 54-owners/cars listed and of those only 36 are shown as suffering brake squeal.

    So I would respectfully ask everyone listed to review the data within the list and advise me of any changes or additions to be made, and I'll update those changes weekly as the information is received.

    PLEASE guys, keep this POST for LISTING only; BUT PLEASE continue, as I will, to vent your frustrations and wishes for actions on to the "Owners with - brake squeal - please register your frustrations HERE!" post, as the larger we can get that particular post the better; this POST is for an overall perspective only...

    Regards to ALL... hope this helps…

    I've now done 6500 miles in total with the last 4000 having been with the Mintex shims fitted. They are still very quiet, with just the very occasional minor squeak during very cold and dry weather.

    Hey I just noticed I'm not on the list at all! It's because I is Welsh init? (Note: for the sensitive types this is a joke.)

    Yes mine makes the odd squeal on the very coldest days from about 3mph to stop. I'm afraid I don't see this as a big deal. I've owned plenty of cars with similar Brembo set ups and 'they all do that sir' is about the long and short of it. It's improved with the shims for sure but it will sometimes still happen. At least they don't rattle too like some similar sports systems.

    Just my take on it but the very best way to avoid the squeal is to get busy on the loud pedal on the right and use much more of the mighty ability these stoppers have when required by pushing quite hard on the big pedal on the left. Trust me they don't squeal on track, ever. My brakes make a bit of a grumbling noise now too but that was all self inflicted in the most fun way possible.

    I'm going for upgraded brakes (a Loba Motorsport/Pagid RS4-2 TTRS set up) in a week or 2 and I'll let you know how they do.

    Stupid question John presumably you are listing the mileage at which brake squeal was first experienced? If so mine started at 300 miles.
