Default 2013 gs 350 f sport brake growl

I've owned my F Sport for 13 months and have less than 8,000 miles. At first I had problems with front brake squeals that required several trips to the dealer service department and a conversation the Lexus Customer Service. The squeal has not returned, however, when I apply light foot pressure the brakes now growl (errrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ). I have been informed by the service department that this is normal for a F Sport and nothing can be done to fix the noise. I do not believe that I'm being told the truth. Has anyone had a similar problem with their 2013 GS 350 F Sport? Any suggestions as to where I go from here. This is my fourth GS and I have never had any problems with the first three.

There's actually a recall on the brakes I think. You gotta call lexus and give them your vin for them to find out for sure.

Unfortunately, that is characteristic of some high performance brakes.

It is almost impossible to have extreme high performance with perfect Luxury...

Kinda like when people were complaining about brake dust with IS350 and ISF brakes - sure, the dealer would replace them with a pad that didn't dust as much, but it also hampered performance...
