Stock Audi pads come with a thin smooshy-pad that supposedly prevents this.
I believe it can be ordered/bought seperately; I've installed Audi pads
before and they didn't come with the smooshy-things, so I guess the only
way you _can_ get it is by ordering it seperately.  I think the Bently says
something about it.  Might only be a 5000 thing, though.
