bad pads maybe. i have the same problem. my pads squeek at low speed stops.
what is probably wrong is that the pads, are made using a certain resisin that if the pads are made improperly (during the process where they heat them up to finalize the molding of the pads) they will squeek. i heard this from a guy who worked for Pagid.
sorry that this explanation is very off center. but im trying to remember what i can.

Isn't there a squeel plate with the BMW brakes? Usually (I haven't changed mine yet, will do so soon enough) there is a piece of thin metal that goes between the pad and the caliper to squelch the squeel.

i haven't encountered any squeal plate when fondling my brakes, but you can get anti-squeal paste which you put on the backside of the pads (the side facing away from the disc of course) which helps dampen squeal.

squeel comes from the different types of brake compounds. Racing breaks squeel, metalic does not but has a shitload of dust, and then normal type... which may or may not squeel, game of chance.

Have you considered Desmo's suggestion? The paste is much cheaper than a new set of pads.

What paste is best to use? I'm actually working on a 928, but I told my girlfriend (hence the Stephanie) that I'd fix the low-speed squeal on her new pads.

Ussually high performance pads will squeal at low speed stops when you're not using them very much. Also, almost all pads are made to squeal a lot when they're at the end of their pad life so you want to get them checked.

In your case, try the paste, but it could just be the compound in the brakes and there's nothing you can do about it. It may also go away in time.
