Not a M3 owner but does this only happen when your brakes are cold? Usually a slight squeak is pretty normal.

No this is happening almost every time I come to a stop. It's actually quite embarrassing, because I can only imagine what other people must think when they figure out that the noise that sounds like a school bus stopping is actually my M3. And that's supposed to be normal.

No issues here after 7-months. I had a similar incident in my old e46 M3 though...Turns out I had a freak incident of a very small pebble/rock getting lodged/jammed in there, LOL!

If it is really loud, like you stated, it might be a defective pad.

They said they checked them last Thursday when it was there and they all looked good. Man it's annoying though.

I would check it myself. The dealer stated they aligned my HID and that shit was off when I brought the car home.

I'm not a brake guy at all. I wouldn't know what to look for, I mean if something was seriously messed up I'd see it, but I'd think if something was serious they would have seen it.

How does your rotor look? Does the wear look even?

Everything looks good, though I haven't pulled the wheels off or anything.

here's my new truck that i'll probably bring on saturday. i've always wanted a lifted truck for a toy so i made an impulse buy on saturday while my friend bought an 09 cts-v from the same dealer. the truck drives softer than my m3 . the cts-v is a scary powerful car as well, i'm going to try and get my buddy to come up with it on saturday.

That's a badass truck man! What dealer is that from?

The 09 CTS-V is a sweet ride...we had one at the shop a few weeks back, black on black. Can't fit much wider than stock for wheels though...max 10" with a 285, no room underneath

i bought it from a dealer in texarkana. i was at my buddy's ranch playing with some 4-wheelers this past weekend and half the reason we went was to buy that cts-v...well we got to the dealership and i starting looking around...the rest is history. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=300288660809 - that was the ebay listing with more pics. it's got a custom interior and a sunroof. rides like a cadillac! i got an amazing deal on it with minimal negotiations. that ebay price isn't even close to what i paid.

the cts needs a widebody kit he's running ps2's stock and i've already got him wanting T1R's of course, he'll be through a set of ps2's in less than 5000 miles the way he drives and how soft those tires are.

my brakes squeal all the time. it's normal, e46 m3's did too. IMHO, if you've never heard the brakes squeal, you're not enjoying the car the way bmw wants you to
