Guys,

Something weird has happened to my discs since the bad weather

All I can describe it as is a type of sludge on the discs
OK - it goes away with use, but the weird thing - its back again the following day?
Touching the discs, it appears to be like oil?

Has this happened to anyone else?

Not heard of this one !!

Have you checked your fluid levels to make sure it's not a fluid leak ?

Wierd,

In the wet they do rust up overnight / after washing, but that's just surface rust.

If it's oily is it brake fluid or damper hyraulic as mentioned above?
Does it happen if stood overnight of just after a drive?

We'll I only first noticed it 2 days ago.
Drove out of house, got to end of road and no brakes!
Had to stop it with the handbrake.
Drove down road touching the brake with left foot - discs cleared up fairly quickly

Washed it yesterday and noticed this sludgy covering on the front discs
Drove it up and down the drive - brakes eventually cleared up.
Overnight they're all rusted up due to rain as you'd expect, but feel greasy to the touch.

Drove it up the drive a little while ago - same thing.

No fluid leaks that I can see, and dampers working OK.
Will just keep an eye on it.

Guys

OK - sludgy stuff hasn't returned on the discs since all the snow/slush has gone away.

However.......
They really rust up bad after rain.
So badly rusted up that you feel a bit of pulsing in the brake pedal.
It does disappear with use?

Very odd, and never happened with any of my previous STI's
