in heavy rain conditions, brakes become unresponsive for appx 1-2 seconds, regardless of pedal pressure. i have been driving for 18 years and can attest that this is not a case of normal 'reduced effectiveness' associated with wet conditions. in certain conditions, the car will travel for 20-50 feet without any noticeable brake effectiveness. yes, i do pump my brakes frequently under these conditions to clear excess water from the pads/rotors.

after traveling for several minutes on freeways in rain storms the first application of the brakes does not slow the car. there is a 1-2 second delay before there is any barking force regardless of pedal pressure. this isn't merely the typical lack of initial bite on wet brakes as with wet brakes the brake force will increase with increased pedal pressure. when this happens, instincts are to press the brake harder and when the water is finally shed the car will pull sharply in reaction to which ever of the brakes 'dries' first. audi has designed and sells a plastic wing that fits around the inside of the wheel well at the underbody/wheel well interface to combat this but it only makes a marginal improvement. in addition, the 2002 audi a4 comes equiped with this same shielding in an apparent awknowledgement of the issue.*ak
