steel or carbon ceramic?

high performance brakes in general tend to squeal a lot. the carbon ceramics on my car are very noisy. my M3s never made much noise unless I had track pads on in which case it sounded like a dump truck coming to a stop.

if you're sure there is enough pad left, I don't think* there's much to be concerned about. that said, if you're concerned, never hurts to have it looked at by a professional who can lay eyes/ears on the car.

welcome to the forum.

My CCBs squeal a little bit under light braking, but goes away for a few days after pressure washing the disks and calipers. If I don't pressure wash at each washing, it can get pretty loud. Pressure washers are probably the best thing that happened to mankind.

My CCB squeak like crazy. More so than what I read from others. I've tried all the hard braking tips.

Ok, had brakes evaluated at my Local Dealership, tech said as you all have said this is normal for high performance brakes, I tried bedding, worked for month then retro. Car is driven approx two to three hundred miles per month, not sure if this is a contributing factor.
Will try pressure washing.
Thanks all !

Can confirm ccb = squeaky. Support group should be formed.

You should also just drive more ... 200-300/mo seems like nothing!

I have CCBs also , mine are quiet, but I also pressure wash my car when I clean it , I use Adams car shampoo in a foam cannon then use a soft brush on the wheels , the wheels are never dirty with brake dust so cleaning with regular soap is all that’s needed

same issue with my non CCB, I need to bed it again by doing a few hot brakes then it goes away for a while then comes back. Usually worse on dry days. Maybe i should apply some copper paste or something on the backing plate but im too lazy nowadays.. just a few hot brakes and it goes away.

Yeah , pressure wash the $hit out of each rotor use a 40 degree tip, hit the pads a caliper really good it blows all the residual dust left behind that causes the squeaking, if you look in the manual on your idrive it actually tells you this procedure for CCB brakes.
