9 times out of 10 on a bimmer its due to the brake pad guide and not the friction side. The "ear" that slides on the caliper guide must be lubricated with with eitehr copper paste or the bmw paste. This is not the same as the rubbery crap people used to splatter all across the back side of the pad.
