Squeaky Breaks

My breaks are squeaking all the time now. I have less than 10K miles on this. Is it possible they need changing already?!?!

probably not....depending on mileage (plus your wear sensors are lit up are they?). Sounds more like you need to start driving it like a Porsche Do some hard (and I mean hard) braking from 60/70 mph.

Mine will squeal a bit after I've been out on an leisurely ride w/ the Mrs. - but nothing a good solo run in the twisties can't fix quickly

Just heat 'em up really well w/ some good hard and fast braking and you'll be fine.

Try blasting the calipers, pads, and rotors with your water hose. That works for me.
