Same here!! It drives me nuts. I just thought it was the nature of the Brembos. And I’ve learned to get used to it. I hate it when it squeaks and people turn their heads and look at me. So shame!

I found hosing with water the brake calipers/dust on cold, help alleviate the squeal, but after >5min drive the squeal returns.

Yeah I power wash the calipers when I’m giving her a bath but it only goes away for like a few drives then returns. Too much brake dust building up I guess.

Thanks for the video!
@Paolo go get some wheel specific cleaner like Griot's Garage or Adams wheel cleaner. Wet your wheels and calipers while they are cold and liberally spray the cleaner on one wheel at a time. Let it soak for about a minute or so then agitate it with some sort of brush. Rinse repeat. This should alleviate your squeal for a bit.

Pleasure! Is it a constant sqeak or just for a second?
