Don’t think I’ve ever used the brakes. Seriously, brake dust is not a problem on these cars!The received wisdom is that the reason the front wheels of cars get so black is that it is dust from the brake calipers. Given that regen should mean less use of the physical disk brakes, does the e-tron suffer less from this phenomenon?
This is new to me! Where did you find that info? My dealer told me I should occasionally hard-brake just clean off the pads.Random fact about the brakes: the vehicle occasionally applies the mechanical brakes just enough to clean the discs (imperceptibly to the driver). This occurs much more frequently when the vehicle senses that it is raining.
I read this somewhere with slightly more technical detail, but cannot find it right now. I believe they are applied regardless of the weather, just not nearly as often. From my owner's manual pg. 92:This is new to me! Where did you find that info? My dealer told me I should occasionally hard-brake just clean off the pads.
