    fitted new genuine rear brake pads (approx 600 miles ago) when i look at them through the wheel they dont seem to be sitting flat on the disc,they are wiping the disc,just not sitting flat,any idea's?

    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?

    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.
