I currently have stock pads on my 750iL for the past year but have grown terminally tired of the "Mega Dust" which collects in a matter of a few days of driving. Although they don't squeal and stop OK, I have had it and have ordered replacement pads. My Mintex Red set of pads will be arriving this week from Bekkers. I have only heard good reports on these pads on this board and the E38 board.

I have used PBR deluxe and Metalmasters on my old 528i. Both are quite clean. Metalmasters stop better, are harder on rotors, and work better when warmed up. The down side of the Metalmasters is they squeal more frequently even with anti-squeal compound placed on the back sides of the pads.

I will provide some feedback after the Mintex pads are installed
