2013 328 xdrive Brakes "HELP"

Hello,

I just had the pads on my 2013 xdrive changed with only 2500 miles and it still sounds like I need new pads after a week of driving.

Has anyone had this issue? If so how did they solve it?


Thanks all,


Bobby

What are the symptoms? Can you describe what your brakes sound like?

It sounds like metal on metal and very loud for the 1st 20 minutes of the drive. It does stop but starts all over again once the car has been parked. (even if only for 10 minutes)

When weather and traffic permit, see if this bedding process improves the situation: http://www.zeckhausen.com/bedding_in_brakes.htm

Does the car sleep outside and often get put away wet?
