Frozen brakes

Is it common in the winter for the brakes to freeze over night on these?....mine seems to do it pretty frequent, and more so if im traveling in snow before stopping for the night

I can't say I've ever encountered "frozen" brakes before in my climate... can you elaborate?

My GTI does this if I garage it wet overnight. In the morning a little resistance to moving then snap it's fine. Come to think of it the Golf R did it too.

im wondering if its the 18 inch rim design or something....i know i was traveling in 2-2.5 feet of snow on the way to work one day and let it sit after a few hours while at work and it froze so bad it wouldnt move until i took traction control off......most the time it is just a little resistance and snap and away you go. Just wondering if its common, seems it does it frequent, maybe its the moisture and weather we have in my area

I've had my tires freeze to the ground before, maybe that's what you're feeling? Stuff frozen inside the rim?

Unless that wet disk brake wiping feature is acting up ie. applying the brakes momentarily when you first take off? I do have a sticky front left caliper, and I do get some creaking in the morning (I guess until the brakes warm up a bit), but not consistent with cold weather.

Pretty sure it's been standard equipment on Touaregs since at least 2008, if not older.
