Pagid, Textar etc OE brake pad Formula - which years?

Does anyone know if the OE formulations from Pagid & Textar are based off the early run e90 brakes (2006 - mid 2010) or the later formulated (mid 2010 - 2012) brakes?

Looking for a lower dust pad that mimics the OE feel without the price hit of OE formulations. Typically, this is Pagid or Textar but given the pad formulation switchover mid-production I'm not sure. I really don't want the dust of the original OE but the latter formulation is nice.

Looking at these: https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...446212&jsn=997

Ready to ditch my squeaky Centric Semi-Metallics after 40k miles. Don't really want ceramic. FWIW the Centric semi-metallics do perform extremely well when hot, but low speeds can be a little noisy. Wish they had slightly better release characteristics too.

Textar was originally oem, did BMW switch to Pagid mid cycle? On my second set of Textars and the still dust like crazy.

Well I know if you buy OEM pads they are different pre and post 2010. Just wondering if you buy the Textar or Pagid you get the later formulation or the previous.

Good to know you Texxtars still dust like crazy - not exactly what I'm looking for...
