[s-cars] 2002 S6 Brakes.

That happened on my '01 S4 around 8k miles.  I looked into it and found a
TSB that said the high metallic content on the pads could glaze the rotors
and the dealer can "de-glaze" the rotors to fix the problem.  I took it into
the dealer and they corroborated the TSB and deglazed the rotors for no
charge.  Deglazing merely amounted to semi-circular scratches around the
rotor surface.  Fixed the problem... although new brake pads may keep it
from recurring.

I wonder if going through a brake bedding process may in fact fix the
problem as well...
