    Something Seems to Stick/Bite on the Front Wheels

    Hi again,

    These days, whenever I take my R8 in the morning, something seems to stick/bite on the front brakes/wheels. Not the rear, I don't think, and it only does it the first time I take the car in the day (so it hasn't run for 10 hours or more). It seemed to be a bit worse this morning, and I had taken it to the car wash yesterday where the guy was very committed to cleaning my wheels with a Karcher. Could it be humidity in the break pads that causes them to swell during the night (the car sleeps in a garage which isn't completely closed to the outside) ? And once I've driven it a bit the braking will have dried them ? Anyone had that same experience ... and fixed it ?

    Thanks everybody,

    G.

    After I wash car if I don't drive to dry brakes the next morning they stick and have to give it a little extra gas to break free

    This happens to me as well, it's normal. Shouldn't happen after driving it though.

    Normal, pads sticking to rotors. Little extra gas and they pop free.

    Cheers,
