A4 brake problem in the rain

In Germany there's a bit of a panic about brake failures on A4s in the
rain. There've been numerous complaints about the brakes feeling fine after
a long 'wet' drive, but turning out not to work properly. Cause of this is
likely a buildup of water or road salt between disc and pad.

The new recently-introduced A4 has a revised braking system. It remains to
be seen if this cures the wet braking problem.

Be forewarned!
