I love the feel of the stock pads, but--the dust is killing me--especially having to clean those 135 style wheels every 2 weeks. I saw on BavAuto that the Cool carbons are low dust but also have great performance. Is this true? The ePads are much cheaper, and given that they're ceramic should grant low dust, but i'm not sure if i'd be trading performance with low dust on the epads. any help would be great!!!!
Your timing is perfect. We have a tech session every Friday morning, tomorrow's is a Cool Carbon install on my car, 05 325ci. I see you're in Mass? If that's still accurate why don't you swing up and take my car for a drive and see if you like them?
