Haha this reminded me of a thread on a Lexus forum where some guy put tire shine on the wheel tread so it looked good and then decided to go drive in the wet with traction control off

There are low dust pads available aftermarket. OEM ones are quite dusty.

Regardless of the flaming, the dust pisses me off too. I have put ceramic pads on my Z06 and my ZR1 came from the factory with them.

Does BMW make an OEM ceramic pad?

B/c a lot of performance car owners spend way too much time worrying about the way their cars look when they should be driving the piss out of the thing.

That's an opinion and not what the thread is about nor what the OP asked.

I don't recall signing a form at the dealer last month that required to to drive the "piss" out of my car.

Well that's odd, they made me sign that form in blood. I thought it was a little excessive at the time, but it is a BMW.
