Get them hot and then do a few fast hard retardations, i.e. 70-20, brake smooth and firm as hard as you can without activating ABS.

3 or 4 of those should help no end.

Try and see.

We have no end of drama's re Pagid stuff TBH, so much so that on BMW's/Merc's I simply won't fit them now as too many people complain about the noises you mention.

Sure they suggest Pagid is OE quality so you'd think great, but we get issues but when re replace Pagid stuff with BMW/Merc supplied stuff (under good will)we never have the issue again and customers are happy.

Thing is no matter what conditions you should be able to use the brakes without these type of problems, if you tracking the car then to a degree you'll expect issues but everyday motoring you don't need it

Just go with EBC pads/disc. ZERO noise if bedded in properly. Probably around 40ish ppl have bought from me on this forum and zero complaints!
