My Synchros did this, as did my brothers' 4ksc Quattros.  I
assumed it 
would be the same small price to pay with this car (I haven't
driven it 
in the rain yet).

My A4 is _scary_ at the first application of brakes in the rain.
Feels like riding two greasy frying pans instead of the front
rotors. A lot of people on the A4.org complained about how
horrible the OEM brakes are in the wet. Well, it's all true.
Can't wait for the Axxis in OZ to come out with the front pad for
the A4. I already bought the rears (same p/n as for the 200).
