The brakes squeak when coming to a stop. This is due to the racing nature of the really powerful and fade-free brakes. They also leave a good bit of brake dust on the wheel rims. After discussing it with some other Type R owners, I decided to leave them be for now at least. When they are worn out, I may switch over to less aggressive pads to quiet the squeaks. Otherwise the car drives fantastically well. Snow tires have made the handling predictably a little less responsive during cornering, but so far no problem at all with traction on snow.
