Is the surface of the rotor seated flat against the surface of the hub? There are 2 or 3 centering pins and 2 rotor screws.

Do you get any vibration while driving?

Have you tried washing all surfaces (pads and rotors)? Seems like some extra material getting caught around the same part of the rotor with every rotation.

Noise has been happening since car was purchased a few years ago with all stock pads/rotors. The brakes have been apart a bunch of times, so if anything was out of place it would have been noticed I believe..
Brand new? Have you bedded the brakes yet?

Here is the bedding process you want to follow. Don't do it at lower speeds and consider it done.

You might back the outside pad off the rotor a hair and then spin it to see if it is true. I know you said it was seated fully - but full seating on a very clean hub face is important. A lot of E46 M3 hub faces I see look like crap.

Also - make sure pads are seated right. The front outside pads can sometimes not have the "ears" just right.
