The pads might still need to be broken in properly.
Performance style pads don't get worked in with soft diving and 3k miles in 6 months... You really haven't gone very far.
Take it out and drive the hell out of it and USE those brakes to get them thoroughly broken in and the noise may stop. If not, a change of pads is the only answer.
I wish the service manager would have known or told me about the performance brakes instead of me having to return on numerous occasions.
The service manager doesn't know what brakes are on the car, and probably doesn't know any other technical aspect of it either. Service managers tell technicians and advisors what to do. Techs work on the cars. Advisors do the paper work and handle customers. An astute salesman Might know the difference in brake pad type from one model to another, but not likely.
Car salespeople are focused more on knowing how the car stacks against competition in size, cargo volume, and price. They're also trained to focus on the important aspects that a customer asks about; like leather seats, moonroof, and what color it is. almost no one asks a salesman how the brakes on one car compare to another, it's iust not something people ask about, so it won't be brought up.
