German cars have brake dust problems because the material in the pads contains graphite. Some aftermarket pads, most notably the Repco Metalmasters don't, and therefore make much less dust.

I don't know what purpose the graphite serves, or if getting rid of it will cause any problems. However, getting rid of it will greatly reduce brake dust.
