Noisy brakes are common on Meganes but they usually squeal rather than groan. Besides changing the pads to Greenstuff, I'm not sure what the cure could be.

Yeah my old Meganes would groan, particuarly during decent braking. I was wondering if something was wearing out (brake pads were fine when checked) but as the car was written off I will never know.
