AWD Dyno in Chicagoland or surrounding area?

this is normal... that is part of having high performance brakes :)

The STi pads have a special metallic material that needs to be warmed up for optimum use. Basically your breaks will squeak in the morning and/or when you don't use them much driving around(like exiting onto an offramp after say 30 mins of straight driving your breaks may squeak). Its perfectly normal.

You'll also get a fairly loud whistle out of them when you're stopping while going in reverse. Completely normal..

Freaks you out the first time, though.
