Break Dust

My apologize if this was mentioned before, for some reason it doesn't let me use the search option while I'm on my phone....
Coming from an audi break dust on stock pads is no surprise, it was horrible there and just as bad here, I used to run Akebono ceramics there, just wondering what do people change the stock pads on the g20 to?

Also interested. I believe our rear brakes are the same as the X5 so those are covered in the thread below but not sure about fronts.

It's still going to collect brake dust but cleaning them is definitely easier.

I don't use ceramic pads, I had the calipers and rims ceramic coated to make cleaning the brake dust easier.

Just ceramic coat wheels.
And then use carpro ironx annually to clean off anything that embeds itself.
Spray on, wait 5 mins watch it turn purple and rinse them well. Easy.
