I've yet to have an issue, though I admit I'm still young.
I wonder which category the F30 brakes fall into. I would think they fall into the performance brake category. To properly "bed-in" performance brakes, it involves going up to high speed then heavily braking without coming to a complete stop. This should be repeated 10 times or so. Followed by a cool down cruise.
Heck, this guy does it on cheapo brakes.
My brakes got swapped out at the dealer today due to the squealing. I'm gonna pick it up tomorrow. Hopefully it's all good.
