Maybe it's just me, but I am getting quite embarrassed when my brakes squeak as loud as you could imagine every time I am in reverse. I have 3200 miles on the car, BMW checked the pads and rotors and said they are fine. Somehow I can't replicate the noise when the BMW tech is in my car but literally all other times I hear it, so I took a video of it today.

Is anyone else having this issue? I was backing into a parking spot at work today and it was so loud a crowd of people turned to look at me. A $90,000 car shouldn't be making the same noise you hear a 98 Toyota Celica make.

Mine squeaks in reverse every once in a while too. Not forward though. 3K miles.

My brakes squeaked in reverse since I took delivery. I finally got fed up so i took it to the dealer last week.

I went for a drive with the tech but of course I couldn't replicate the sound. I was waiting for oil change when my advisor came out and said the tech took my car out with the shop foreman to see if they can replicate it. I was thinking to my self they probably went for a joyride.

After the 3rd attempt they were able to replicate the sound and scheduled me to come in another time to replace front right brake pad.

I checked my dash-cam and the techs took my car to an empty parking lot, drove in reverse looking for any sounds but failed to do so. When they pulled back into the dealer there was another car blocking the garage. The tech put the car in reverse to move back then he suddenly heard the brakes squeak. One of the tech got out and managed to pinpoint which wheel the squeaking was coming from. They were able to replicate it many times after that.

I'm going back tomorrow to get the front right brake pad replaced.

Any resolution on this? My brakes squeak like crazy when I reverse. No noise going forward.

Mine too. Only 200 miles on the car. I back in everywhere and I agree it is embarrassing to have a car like this squeak.

Had them give her a once over for the 1200 mile service yesterday... Everything checks out fine... EXCEPT the screeching braking in reverse...

My SA told me to drive it a little bit longer and if it still persists, to bring it on back and he'll take care of it... I'll keep you all posted...

It doesn't make sense though, because we're all in the "only in reverse" club... It has to be something with the rotors and pads... But why only in reverse??

My SA said it's definitely not unheard of...but didn't have a fix/explanation as he had the tech look at it as he has every other complaint of it, for now...nothing aside from monitoring it and if it worsens or happens aside from just in reverse...

Yep mine too. I have ~1000 miles, 2018 F80. Squeaks like crazy when reversing into a parking spot and applying the brakes slowly. Can't get it to do it 100% of the time either.

Me too. Seems to happen more when the weather is cold. My car is going in for it's one year service next week so I'll be asking WTF.
