metallic sounding clunk or click from front ,brakes ??? weird

ive had a metallic sounding cluck or click from the front brakes for about 6months ,I had a good look at them and couldnt make them make any sound with the wheel off ,but when you roll at low speed backwards then put the brake on ,cluck ! then forward ,clunk! lol theres nothing wrong with anything else Ive had the car to a bmw specailist and they said theyve seen this before and it was the pad moving forward and backwards? weird lol ,the cars perfect otherwise ,well for an 07 325i e92 coupe

anybody else had this and if so how did you get rid of it ?

It's the pads moving backwards and forwards, probably the pads are pattern parts and are a slightly different size. You might check the guide bolts are tight and the anti-rattle springs are firm but I wouldn't worry too much.

They use Pagid and Textar and probably others. Get them from your dealer, it's only a tenner or so more and you know they're exact.

Mine used to do it with the factory pads, stopped doing it since fitting ebc's.

Never worried though. Just pad clunk.

Wonder those who replace OEM pads with ebc redstuff get permanent fix on the clicking noise. My 2010 335i coupe (with M3 package) has the same noise with froward/backward braking. I spoke to my local BMW dealer shop foreman and he told me that he would use after market pad like ebc for in-warranty car like mine. Also, he told me that this is normal with floating caliper on all BMW models even with the latest 135 which has fixed caliper. He also said that any lube and/or pad replacement may help initially because they are tighter. Once lube & new pads start wearing off, the clicking noise will return. I laster mentioned to him that my sold '07 328i coupe never had such issue. He simply said that it has smaller & different brake pad. At this moment, I am at a loss given his response.
