Ceramic
brakes
Applies
to:
vehicles
with
ceramic
brakes
Ceramic
brakes
provide
excellent
deceleration
rates.
The
break-in
period
for
new
ceramic
brakes
may
be
significantly
longer
than
for
standard
brake
rotors.
Due
to
the
properties
of
the
material,
they
may
cause
noises
at
lower
speeds.
Ceramic
brakes
also
absorb
more
moisture
in
wet
condi-
tions.
Therefore,
there
will
temporarily
be
less
braking
force
than
when
the
brakes
are
dry.
You
can
compensate
for
this
by
pressing
the
brake
pedal
harder.
Z\
WARNING
Only
apply
the
brakes
for
the
purpose
of
cleaning
the
brake
system
when
road
and
traffic
conditions
permit.
You
must
not
en-
danger
other
road
users
and
increase
the
risk
of
an
accident.
Due
to
the
risk
of
injury,
only
have
an
au-
thorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility
work
on
the
brake
system.
Incorrect
repairs
could
impair
the
function.
Never
let
the
vehicle
roll
while
the
engine
is
stopped
because
this
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
During
automatic
braking
maneuvers,
the
brake pedal
may
move
downward
automati-
cally.
To
reduce
the
risk of
injury,
do
not
place
your
foot
under
the
brake
pedal.
@)
Note
Never
let
the
brakes
“rub”
by
pressing
the
pedal
lightly
when
braking
is
not
actually
necessary.
This
can
cause
the
brakes
to
over-
heat
and
increases
braking
distance
and
causes
wear.
Observe
the
important
information
for
driv-
ing
downhill
>
page
94.
This
especially
ap-
plies
when
towing
a
trailer.
G)
Tips
If
you
retrofit
your
vehicle
with
a
front
spoil-
er,
wheel
covers
or
similar
items,
make
sure
that
the
air
flow
to
the
brakes
is
not
ob-
92
structed.
Otherwise
the
brake
system
can
overheat.
Also
refer

brake
fluid
