My 2003 S-8 had terrible brake squeal after new pads were fitted at 78,000 mi. My technician re-surfaced the rotors to no avail. He then swapped for a new set (same brand) from his supplier but they still squealed. Then he bought a Mercedes Benz lubricant product said to eliminate the noise. It helped, but on light application such as slowing down when approaching a toll booth or in bumper-to-bumper traffic they squeal annoyingly. If you get on the pedal hard-no noise. However passengers don't particularly like that style of driving. Has anyone obtained better results with a non-OEM brand?
