I have these on my car and they dust very little and the dust is a white can't see the dust

Sorry man but I think those pads are terrible. You're right about not dusting though.

I would go with a set of Hawk HPS, good braking, low dust, cheap.

They are noisy, but that's not my issue with them. They don't grab as much as I like them to, especially in a car like an M3. I want "hitting a wall feeling" when I mash the brakes. I autox so I use the brakes as late as possible and need one that grabs like you're dropping an anchor. The green pads came up short, maybe the reds are better, but for my money I'd use either Porterfield R4 or R4S or a Hawk HPS or a Carbotech Panther (they're dusty).
