Caliper Weights?

I thought the caliper weights were only on early builds...mine's got them (front only). Does everyone else have them too? Maybe it's still early?

My back brakes squeel like a stuck pig sometimes.

Powerfreak, your brakes were probably built in October right after you ordered. They just sat on the shelf with the others for months........ ok, probably not.

That is weird. Maybe the problem ISN'T fixed???

All the cars I've seen have them. The weights, as I understand it, ARE the fix to the originally reported problem (noise, shudder,etc..).

I heard they continue to improve, and brembo has a solution that should show up soon if it hasn't started already.

I put some Brembos pads on yesterday with something I hadn't seen before from them.

Some stick on plastic backers, and some high heat gasket sealer which is an old trick to stop squealing.
