    I have just upgraded (i hope) to some S5 callipers and black diamond discs with some EBC red stuff pads. Anyway they were fitted to my A4 last Saturday I then drove 300 miles to the Isle of Wight and upon arrival shortly after I noticed a horrible creaking noise coming from the front drivers brake, the noise sounds to be coming from the calliper, all sliders are greased ect ect so I am wondering if anybody has experienced this noise with there brakes before. I have a short YouTube vid for you to hear. S5 creaky calliper - YouTube

    Also I will add it does it when stood still by pressing the pedal on and off :/ I had the calliper in bits last night and checked everything but could not find where the noise could be coming from. It's driving me mad already

    I did use copper grease even though most say not I I still do it :/ I have been told to get some ceramic grease and do the sliders.

    I had the same problem with the OEM callipers and Audi fixed it last week.
    It turned out to be corrosion in the brake pads holder

    Interesting :/ although I have stripped them down and there doesn't seem to be any corrosion but will double check when I next get the time to take in bits again.
