    Dustless brake pads ???

    Wife's 2.5 X3 is finally out of warranty. Anyone know of a dustless or almost dustless brake pad?

    which you can find on several web sites, and TireRack has them or something similar.

    Ask around. We've been told to definitely switch and never to switch. I think there is agreement that you'll give up some stopping power and may get some squealing back.

    We were lazy one winter and now our wheels are needing a refinish. So we're still just using the stock pads until we either need new ones or decide to fix the wheels. Given that this is a grocery getter, I should have switched when it was new...

    I've owned a few new BMW's and

    many many old ones. I've never had a problem switching to near dustless pads. Mintex and PBR were two of the brands I've used with out a problem. Being how we most often drive as normal law obiding citizens, I have not really noticed any lack of braking. Even when required to brake hard, I still didn't have a problem. Realize that the worst pads on a BMW will far out brake the best pads on almost anything else.
