I picked up the car yesterday and sure enough, the noise is still there
I called the SA today and this was her response:
We have already changed the rear brake pads and if you want to change the front ones, you will have to pay out of pocket because BMW will not cover it as the brake pads are still within spec
That is by far the dumbest explanation I have received
. So I asked her again what that had to do anything with the squeal and she said that's the best they could offer since the front pads are practically new.
Makes no frickin' sense
Um that makes perfect sense. If they are within spec why should they replace them, regardless of dirt between the pad and rotor making a squeal which could be the issue?
