Hey I have a 92 325i and everytime I break, I hear a loud squeaking sound coming from the rear. And aslo any time I'm driving under ten miles an hour I can also hear the squeaking. And the breaks are fairly new so I don't think that could be it. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance

Did you turn your rotors? If not, the surface of the pad and the rotor is diffrent, thus creating the ennoying noise that you hear.

Could be warped rotors, but first, pull the rear pads and coat the back sides (not the braking material surface) with some anti-squeal (I like the orange stufff that gets kind of plasticky when cured), let them set up for say 30 minutes and reinstall, then go and see what she sounds like.

In addition to what Bear had told you; The noise can be attributed to the very material of your current brake pads themselves; the dealers pads (or OEM) are much better (quite) in comparison with some after market stuff. Probably it will take different BRAND of brake pads to solve this mystery- assuming you listen to Bear above-good rotors/pads back-coating to keep them away from your rotors.
Note: Never use GREASE on brake pads; they make lubricants for the guiding pins only!!
