Excessive Brake Dust 2018

Has anyone else noticed that your wheels get dirty quickly. I do admit that every time I get in the car I need to go fast. Just wondering if others see this issue. Thinking about changing brake pads.

Yessir after getting them sparkly clean I have 2 good drives before they look like dust bowls. Even more noticeable since Ive changed to gloss black wheels. I believe certain brake pads will help alleviate this problem but not sure which ones.

fyi if you bring your lc in due to excessive squeaking you can have them replaced for free due to the TSB on them. had mine swapped over the weekend and can tell no difference in breaking effectiveness, and in addition to not sounding like a freight train at traffic lights it also appears to have resolved the brake dust feature

TOMs Racing Brake Pads are another option for high performing with super low dust.

Dealer also has a different set of pads that can replace the stock units with, they generate less squeal and 100% less dust. A bit less performance, but most will never see the difference.
