It's a resonance caused by a complex combination of Vibration, Pad material, mount style, and rotor size.

Noise typically reduces after hard braking..

Is it worth getting shims? They are expensive given I need 4.

Yeah...I pretty much have it minimized now. Hoping the anti Vibration plates will take care of it completely..

FWIW, I spent 400 miles out in the W. Carolina Mountains a week or so ago with My Audi buddies and the brakes were awesome!

interesting. I wonder if the seller on MK5 (derek) is aware of the fix/almost fix now, cos I think he thought I was nuts or something, lol.

oh yeah, no denying the kit works well, but I think a good set of aggressive pads, lines, and fluid change on the GTI will provide about the same performance.

True dat...The stock brakes are actually quite good. Some tyrosport bushing and pads are really all most need for a good street set-up. I'm big on "Feel" though and these do it for me, even though the Whoa factor may not be improved all that much (Rotor/pad dependent). The Brembo's just feel solid and effective....I'm just not a fan of sliding pin calipers...

When will you be installing the shims?

I drove today and the squeal came after some time driving.

Mine are back from powder and being reassembled now.

Derek and I are going to work on the S pads this weekend, but at first glance, it doesn't seem like it'll be easy to make them work.

My dad's work has some grinders that will help make it easier, but we shall see.

I'll update this with info when I have it.

Don't forget to swap your crossovers! You want the big piston leading

Yours was the worst. Ive not had anybody else have issues like you did. Usually just small noises here and there. Unfortunately with so many variables its difficult to know the cause of each. I wish the dampers weren't so much, it would be an easy thing to add to each kit.

One additional upgrade to the S pads are the weights added to the pad from the factory. They act as a built in damper which could also help with noise. Many of the larger pads 17z/18z have these.

I'm waiting on pictures of the S pad modified. I would love to know what needs to be grinded away.

Just ordered some aftermarket shims from amazon with rewards points and will post a review after I install them. My only concern is how easy is it to remove the brake quiet from the back of the brake pads. These shims are adhesive and I'm sure they will need a smooth clean surface to adhere to.
