I'm getting a huge amount of brake dust on the front wheels of my Brembo fitted BF-GT. Has anyone had any luck trying different pads that reduced the amount of dust.

Thanks

There's a whole thread on it over on AFF (www.fordforums.com.au). Are you running the 4-pot or 6-pot brembos?

There are a few options available for both.

Due to a limited sorce of friction material that is eviro friendly, & people friendly, your pretty much stuck with what you can get. BMW have been working on a low dust friction material, but still makes a mess on the wheels.
