LOW dust brake pads for the M3?

Does anyone know who would carry or make these? I wouldn't mind swapping the pads for something that gives off less brake dust. I won't change to a lower quality or worse brake pads. But if theres something out there that gives off less brake dust & maintains the same performance or better...I'd love to read about it.

Thanks guys,

Doubtful. Unless you go with carbon ceramic brakes, aka $10k. OR an entirely new brake system.

If you want less dust, you will have to take a performance hit. Just wash your car every week and it won't be that noticable.

Wax your wheels so it will be easier to clean it.

Who makes the OEM pads?

On my current car, I've used Carbotech pads and they offer a slight increase in braking performance while producing less dust. Actually, it may have not been less dust but the dust was a light gray color instead of black or dark gray so it didn't look as dirty when dust built up.

Not sure what's available on the aftermarket for brake pads in the M3 fitment yet.

Use P21S gel wheel cleaner. And wax them.

So, they're no better than E46 M3 pads in terms of dust?

The brake dust doesn't seem as bad on my ///M as it was on my e46 325i.

Could be worse.
