For those with stock pads and rims, u know that brake dust is annoying and the constant cleaning causes squealing on your brakes. I Have found a product at pep boys called "Squeal Medic" by Gunk. $6.99 US and I used it on my 9-3, squealing was instantly gone. Thank the lord. Anyways I've noticed the squealing would occur on humid days or after wet or after excessive use but so far a week has gone by in squeal weather with not a hint of squealing sound so I think you guys and gals should give it a try if you can.

How do you use it? Is it a spray of some sort or what?

Basically wash ur car first and wheels. Spray light coat (2 seconds) directly on rotor surface then drive car and brake 5 to 8 times while driving at low speed.

What is it made out of? I have a concern that you will glaze your rotor like that.

Dunno if it helps, but my brake squeal has been gone since 17K miles and I'm now around 20K. Other than mileage, I do not brake/wash any differently.

The spray contains some aluminium compound which is suppose to act both as a luricant (kind of counter productive) and filler for the groves left behind by the machining. Many brake shop use this because they want to avoid customers coming back because of squeak.

I think this is what they used when I took car in when my first pads used to do this, talking about they replaced my pads which i doubted. I noticed the rotors looked near brand new after applying it as well.The only knock was after it rained today in nyc while I was watching WNBA game at garden, I come back to car and start driving, the squeak was back! Like this sucker washed off or something. I'm thinking of course, the more moisture the more squeak *rain* so tomorrow when all is dry and I can was car again I will reapply because I think this does wonders and doesnt seem counter-productive to me. I guess I will check in with dealer to see if it will cause anything like faster brake wear and tear or something.
