Back from my dealers.
They investigated the problem, took it for a spin and what not, upon getting my keys back they showed me an email that Honda have sent out to dealers, in regards to the squeaking brakes, as its a known issue which they have investigated.
Its pretty much along the lines of,
Due to new regulations, certain materials cannot be used in brake pads anymore, to brake pads are now harder than before, meaning the pads and discs will wear at the same rate.
Honda, have substituted these harder materials, for softer materials that are allowed to be used, so that the brake discs will last longer than the pads, in turn, these new materials can and will squeak, and its normal/acceptable for them to do so.
