Just swap with a WRX owner for his stock braking system and your squeak will go away. Problem solved.

ninja edit: You didn't give enough details. Bone stock? upgraded pads? Nice brakes squeak a bit. You can try a few remedies like removal and reinstallation with lots of anti-squeal, etc. Sand down the pads and rotors lightly to see if you have deposit material causing issue (probably not it, but never hurts.) Really though, if it's squeaking a little here and there then it is operating perfectly and there isn't much you can do about other than to turn up the radio.
