Oh, by stopping well I mean I usually do some emergency stop practice about every 3 months - definitely enough to squirm the 225s on the Blob and fire the ABS - and these showed no difference from the previous OEM items.

Go to repco, Rodzy... seriously. Last pads at the back were from them, some generic set they stock. I've had them in 6 months now and they don't dust up, they stop well and were 1/3rd the price the OEM BMW stuff.


I just happend to ask the service guy about dustless brake pads while I was there, I told him I was sick of having to clean the front wheels every two days and I asked him about these. He said thats normal and pointed out to all the BMWs in the shop and they all had black front wheels also. Just because all the other cars have them doesn't mean I have too, bloody hell! He said the dustless pads are "Shit" in his own words, they offer very poor stopping power, and he said if theres no brake dust you've got a problem. Sounds like yours are dustless pads are OK, do you have the same stopping power as the OEM pads? Also, if I get them, do I have to have special rotors? I get almost no dust on my rear wheels in 2 weeks so i'll leave the rear, did you do the rear?, the front ones need new pads and rotors anyway so it fits in good.
