Agreed,get it looked at for sure.

They have a tendency for the pads to seize into the caliper carrier,thats usually what causes the squeak.I'd be very tempted to replace the discs and pads now anyway as if one or more of the pads have got overly hot they tend to break up.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
