Dave, excellent info, thanks.
So what do you recommend for brake pads that offers same or better than OEM braking for the street-that gives off less brake dust than OEM?
I currently have the Axxis delux plus on my vehicle (330ci). I am impressed with the less dust. I would say they dust 95% less than OEM. However, more importantly the braking power is much less. This I don't like at all. I read alot of post that said they were almost the same that the axxis were just a little less than OEM in braking power. To me, I would keep the dust over the stopping power.
I recently had the opportunity to drive a 2005 330i as a loaner for 4 days. Bottom line is I want that stopping power back!!!!! I miss the ability to stop on a dime feeling. I also autox and definitely miss the braking power!!!
