    Lol well he owns 3 cars, a Mercedes CLK 200 Convertible, BMW X6 3.5d and BMW F10 530d Saloon. He sold off his Mazda RX-8 and BMW 320d Convertible recently, though strangely he's planning on having yet another BMW X6...

    remember that sometimes how much brake dust u are able to see has alot to do with the wheel design too.

    my roommate has a 2006 3-series and i don't remember there being any "excessive" amounts of brake dust. i'll recheck later today when he gets off of work.

    The thing about brake pads is that if you don't like the ones that came on the car from the factory, you can always pop in whatever ones you want.

    Put a protective coat on your wheels, so its harder for brake dust to stick.

    don't get me started. I saw these teal rims on an old cadi the other day. I threw up in my mouth a little.

    Ceramic pads don't leave any dust on your rims but they tend to crack a lot and they don't perform like they should specially when it gets cold. I have a 300 with 22" rims and ceramic pads.
