Unhappy New breaks squeaking after 3 weeks

Recently changed my front and back break pads and rotors. I went with a premium pad and cheaper rotor. It's been 3 weeks (including a 4hr trip and 2hr trip each way) and my front breaks are still squeaking most of the time. I didn't replace the sensor cable that attaches to the pad, but don't think that would effect anything other than leaving the "brake" light on.

I've seen some threads about an anti-squeak spray. The squeak is driving me nuts!! Any suggestions??

Did you change your brakes yourself? Did you break anything? If you did break something when doing a brake job that could cause a squeak. Does it happen only the first stops of the day, like if you drive at breakneck speed before breakfast causing heavy braking? Is your car a 'vert, a coupe, a sedan or a shooting brake? The reason I ask is that wagons put a heavy load on brakes and can cause them to break more often.

Did you put any anti-squeal on the back of the pads? I had to have BMW do that to my 335i on the rear to finally fix the rear sensor/brake squeal issue. Although it still does it a little when brakes and temp get very hot, it's nothing near what it used to be and they also replaced rotors and pads. Not sure if it's the calipers in these things or what but it drives you to take "another" drink and scratch your head!
