Pretty embarrassing when people are looking at the car cause of the noise.
I've had 3 cars with BBKs, none sounded like this.
I've gone with Range Rover
brake squeal is caused by oscillation between disc and pad, certain pads are prone to it usually the hard ones but should be able to clear with a compound between the pad and piston as it absorbs the vibration, depending who you talk to copper grease or copperslip should do the trick

years ago they used a plate between the pad and piston which you also put a smear of coppaslip onto then assembled, if neither work it can only be the make of pad as the compounds are different between makers
