Re: A4 Metallic Brakepads

In my own opinion, no; a rotor turning will not eliminate brake squeal.  
One thing to try:  go into your local auto parts store (one dealing in
Chevy & Ford stuff, etc.  - Pep Boys, Parts America, Trak Auto, etc.);
pick up a spray can of anti-squeal compound.  Remove your pads, spray
the backs, let it dry & reinstall the pads.  If you only have a slight 
squeal now, I bet this will eliminate it entirely for approx. $5.

 Subject: A4 Metalic Brakepads..
 Hey there,
    I just installed a set of FrictionTech brake pads on my A4.  I am getting
 some squealing during braking and was told that turning the rotors (all 4)
 will eliminate this.  I am inclined to agree but wanted to float the
 to you pro's anyway.   Is this going to eliminate the noise??  and does $125
 bucks seem reasonable???  it seems mighty steep to me....
    Thanks for the help
