If they're the OEM rotors and have a fair few miles on them, check to see if they have a little bit of a lip on them. If so, then it's possible that your pad wear indicator (that little bit of spring steel that scrapes the edge of the rotor when low) is prematurely activated by the pad sinking deeper into a thinner disc, thereby making contact with the lip a lot sooner than it should be.

Otherwise, as per Dashyy's suggestion, if you don't already have the adhesive between your shims and the pads' backing plate, then you really do need it. My V36 already had that stuff on the shims when I changed my pads, though I'm not sure if that was the work of the compliance workshop here or if that was from the factory. At any rate, the stuff stayed on the shims when I removed them from the previous crappy pads, so I simply clipped them onto the new EBCs with the adhesive intact and I'm still squeal-free to this day.
