Im lost now,? Where do I go from here? I go from ProStop Platinum pep-boys brake pads too what? Very frustrating this guessing game.

How incredibly bad is the oem bmw brake pad dust???? Apparently I thought I had oem brake pads but Now I see that I don't.

Any guidance or direction would be very much appreciated
Stock brake dust is very bad. Like drive for a week and your front wheels are dark grey to black. Drive for a full day and your wheels look like poop.
Worth it if you can wipe your wheels down twice a week.
