    As Matt said they are different weights based on frequency emitted.

    Well I got no idea how you would install it on a RS3 being that they are a mono block. But still it's a stupid after though idea. God knows what impact it has on track days and such.
    Bottom line would be if it hinders any performance then it's completely pointless being that you spent all that money on a performance car

    Agree. It's a band-aid fix.
    There is a detailed article on the UK forums about shims being the real permanent fix.
    The brake squeal issue has been around since 8P, 8V and now 8V gen2.

    True it's a band aid solution to it for sure. The fact that Audi are installing such devices and calling it there own technology is bad. Unless it's what Iv notice on the RS3 calliper where there isn this bulge on the side? Can anyone share some light on this cause Iv been wanting to know what it is for some time now. Never seen this feature on a calliper before.

    I'm just going to throw this out there guys. When dealing with performance brakes I always expect them to squeal to some extant especially if you do track days, "spirited hills runs", etc. RS brakes are huge for factory fitment and make most factory Brembo setups look tiny. Let them squeal! Tell everyone your car has stomping brakes!!!

    Your completely right bat.
    Big brakes naturally squeal. But more important thing, theses people need to know that anything you do to prevent this from happening is unnatural and will hinder performance in a small degree.
    But at the same time I get it, it's annoying as hell. But this isn't new to anyone who's either owned big brakes kits or have had plenty of time on the track.

    Nope, they do not.
    As I've said on this forum before, we owned an HSV VZ GTO with optional AP 6 spots,...NO squeal. Also bought new a 2012 C63 P.P.,...big brakes, NO squeal. Got plenty of mates who are HSV owners, GTS/GTSR etc,...NO squeal.
    In the Audi situation, it's a disgrace, & something that owners should not have to tolerate.

    Yes we acknowledge that not all oem sets do but if they don't they certainly have a preventative technique ether shims, grease or other. Big brakes will squeal
    Also my cousins c63 does squeal and I have heard plenty of HSV Kits specially the redline series with the brembo F40 sets do squeal.
    Plenty of factors in play here they cause it. Humility is a huge factor and pad compound
