Hahaha. They even mention the brakes at 3:40...

On a side note, I'd do wild if I saw 2 s7's rolling up behind me!!

Ok, dont scorn me for not being an S7 owner and speaking on the subject, but after all the vids and personal encounters with the S7 its apparent that similar to its race-car sibling, the brakes squeal is simply the norm and not a particular problem. Not to mention there all sorts of reasons for the noise. They all do it, but apparently only when the brakes are cold (which is typically the opposite of when brakes squeal). Some S7's come with brembos some with Baer/alcon racing breaks which do squeal. Its not only the S7 either but other supercars with simular racing brakes of various brands.
