Look at that antenna!! That is one virgin fresh ride, very nice. The brakes squeal now and again. What's wrong with the horn? Very nice ride. Congrats and welcome!

thanks....looking into the pads.... brought it to the dealer and they kept trying to tell me nothing was wrong and that is the way the brakes are supposed to sound... the horn on the other hand sounds pretty gay... is there a way to change that?

I use Stoptech pads and R1 discs, still squeal from time to time. I know the brake noise sucks, but it may not be worth spending the money. After all I spent $600+ with little to no help. Good luck.

Go out in your new sweet ass ride, find a nice back road, and do 3 to 5 100-0 full stops. Brake as hard as you can before the abs engages. After drive to 10 minutes without using the brakes to allow them to cool down. Bedding them in might make the squeal go away. It's ok if you see a lot of smoke on the 3rd or forth time, that's what they are suppose to do. These brakes are meant do be abused. They like it.

^^ +2 My RS6's brakes squealed like a stuck pig, much worse than the SRT/8's.

On the horn, isn't it appropriate for San Fran?

The dealer said that's the way the brakes are supposed to sound. :rofl: that's funny.

But congrats on the trade in, MB is such a nice color!

Really though, they do squeal. It seems to be a downfall of the brakes.
I have asked this question before and one person will say "buy this! Replace that!"........then two seconds later someone will post "That doesn't work!".
My advice is to ride those brakes until they are shot then get some pads that reduce dust.

I have basically the same ride except 2009 with 30K miles. It is one sweet color. Go to Pepboys and pick up a stubby rubber antenna for like 12 bucks. Looks 1000x better.

Are you talking about the horn sound when setting the alarm from your remote? If so, go into your settings on your dash...under your speeometer. There's a setting in there to turn horn off.
