My car has been back into the dealer today. I had the fix of new discs and pads a couple of months back (under warranty) which fixed the issue initially, but the reversing noise came back.

The dealer sent a full report back to BMW (including a scan of the car and my video of the noise) and BMW technical have come back to them telling them to change the rear pads again but this time there is a different part number. This seems more hopeful as previously they just replaced like for like with the same part numbers as original.

I don't know if the new pads are just a different compound or if there is some physical design change to eliminate the noise, but I guess the part must have been updated for a reason.

They don't carry that part in stock so the car is booked back in again on Thursday for the work. Fingers crossed this is a permanent fix.
