Dust level from BMW Performance brake kit

Hello,

Very close to pulling the trigger on the BMW kit and Looking for some feedback from those of you who have the performance brakes: how is the dust amount? I have had the super dusty old OE pads and the newer almost zero dust OE pads and like the no dust but am ok with giving that up a bit for some more bite. Are the pads basically 135 pads?

Thanks!

I have this setup with the 338/324 combo. A little dusty but the bite is amazing. Maybe I would say about the same as OEM, maybe slightly better. And I find them better than the 8 piston Brembo combo on my Rs4... And the only reason I mention my other car is because the brakes are known to be very good. However, the feel and bite is even better in my BMW! Got them from Tisher who has taken great care of me throughout the years! You will never look back, and that goes for the look as well!

Sorry if this is off topic, I see that you drive a 328i, is your ebrake still working after installing the rear performance brake?

How about this, you are up in Seattle; you come and test drive my ride followed by a solid microbrew on you! You will be sold! Also, do steel braided lines when you do it.

Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately, Seattle is just a bit too far from where I am in California.
