        Could be a bit of road salt/grit on your discs, once they are warmed up they should be ok.

                  Mine seem a lil soft recently, and not so much squeek, but grate at slow speeds. Could be on their way out I guess.

                  But I had the car in for the ABS recall a couple of weeks back and they did a free healthcheck at the same time, and they said the brakes where fine!

                        Mine have only just started squeaking during this cold snap, they have been fine otherwise.

                            Nath believe me you would hear them squeak if they were squeaking , they drove me mad as the squeak was that loud i was embarassed to brake in town because people would look at you funny , where i like them to jump with the pop and bang of the remus
