Annoying noise

I'm getting like a squeeking noise from just pulling off in traffic and driving slowly at low revs and its fairly noticeble. I think its either the new pads or drilled and grooved disks as its not there if I drive and slowly put the brake on and keep driving. My mate who works at the garage said it would be these as you get noise from drilled grooved disks but surely not a really noticable squeeking noise. I'm really thinking about ditching then and putting normal disks back on as the sound is driving me mad, is there anything I can do other than put normal disks back on?

cheers

How long has have the discs and pads been on in miles?

Did you replace the shims? did you put a small ammount of copper grease on the backs of the pads??

Are you sure it is the brakes?

Re: Annoying noise

I just got a garage to put them on, dont know what they did. as I said If I drive with the brake pedal on at the same speed there is no noise and when I take the brake off it comes straight back so Im thinking it something to do with these?

Bedding in process? When I get new pads and rotors together I often find they take time to settle... and some feathering of the disc causes a noise.. but after about 200 - 400 Miles of normal driving the noises disapeer

How many miles have you done since the change and what sort of driving have you been doing, does it involve lots of stop start driving etc etc??

Go back to where they were fitted and ask them to take a look?
