Is this the brake pad issue? Not sure why this has happened to me as I don't use OPD and the car has not been sitting unused for more than a day after getting wet. It did go away after stopping though.

There's a service bulletin out for this issue. After a rainy day or car wash the pads stick to the rotors and when they break free parts of pad break off and start crumbling apart. That's what you hear. I had mine replaced with the new version of the pads.

Yes. That’s the sound of the brake pads rusting on to the discs. If you live near a hill when near the top going down out car in neutral and lightly press brakes to burn the rust off. Alternatively drive in reverse whilst doing same either way discs will engage.
