They aren't going to replace them but they should make them stop squeaking.

Go to another dealership. If you find it noisy they need to diagnose the problem.

Spray the calipers with high pressure water drive normally then get the highway get up to 100 or so threshhold brake down to 50. Do this twice and your noise will go away for a while.

Start threshold braking every time there is no one behind you. Shouldn't take too long to wear your brakes down to replacement thickness.

I had the same problem on my 330i two months ago. It was the REAR DISC and rear pad making the annoying squeaky noise. I went to dealer twice and the foreman found the problem. They found " HOT SPOT " on my disc so they ended up changing the disc and pad AFTER approval from service department head and foreman. BMW now refuses to change any new parts UNLESS the problem is very serious. Since u went to Shelly, then u must be in los angeles. Go try NEW CENTURY BMW and they should solve your problem. Good luck !

i'm in OC...have another appointment this Saturday...hope they can do something to stop the f..noise....i also had alignment problem b4 at 1100+ miles...Shelly bwm didn't adjust it to spec...i then complained but they claimed it's normal for the car to pull to the right a lil bit....last week i brought it in again they checked it up and came up with the caster problem and said $270 would fix it..i refused and brougth it to Vogue Alignment on Garden Grove Blvd where the men did it the old style "reading the bubble" instead of the high tech machine...switch the tires since SAI is more on the left than on the right...should be reversed...and adjusted the toes for front and rear and now it's more straight then ever b4...for 70 bucks...
