Did the put a very thin smear of copper grease on the metal pad backing? Did you choose a harder scintered metal pad composite, rather than a softer Kevlar? Have you used them a bit to get them bedded in?
Yes I did. I got the kit form my BMW dealer and I used all the parts in the kit.
I did also ask them what could be done abut it and they wanted me to bring it in and they were going to put something on the back of the pad to keep from vibrating I think. I was just hoping for an easy laymans solution for a simpe problem. =)
Most cages use a thin metal shim between the piston and the pad metal, and again with the thin smear of copper grease. Interested to know if their offer is for a BMW part.
You didn't say if the squeak was freewheeling or when brakes applied. Have you checked the rotors are nice and clean with minimum scoring and run out. When replacing pads I always spend time cleaning out the old rubbish, particularly in the caliper slots, check the pads are free to move easily and the pistons do not stick now they are pulled back by the new thicker pads.
