Squeaking brakes

Brakes

Vehicle Information: Year: 2002; Total Mileage: 11,000;

The brakes on my Boxster were completely silent up until 5,000 miles. At 5,000 miles, for some unknown reason, they started squealing really loud. The dealers response was that this was normal. Today, at 11,000 miles my Boxster sounds like a city bus the brakes are so loud. Dealer says its normal, I have to keep them clean (I wash it 2x a week) and that they are "glazed" (despite me trying to bed them in again and again). On my way home from the dealer, they are squealing louder than ever.I'm at wits end about the brakes. Is this really normal as the dealer says? When I push on the brakes it is rather embarrasing they squeak so loud. Any suggestions?
