    Hey guys I have a facelift model s and was wondering when any of you push the break it doesn't matter if the car is in park or whatever just whenever you push the brake pedal you hear a static noise or a spring noise from the actually pedal. Do any of you have this?

    Well, there's a spring in the pedal ... so you might hear it.

    Problems with quiet cars these days..

    Actually, I hear a grinding sound on the brakes. Its especially loud if I have my windows open.

    I spoke to the SvC and they said that due to regen, the brakes are actually used a lot less. The grinding sound goes away if you always use the brakes.

    Save the seeking out a better service center for a different day, on a different issue. Let this one go if your brakes are working fine (stopping the car).
