Armorall sells a spray that helps cut down on the dust a bit. I use it both on my X5 and my CTS-V.

I had moved it all the way up and all the way down, but I didn't try telescoping it all the way in and out. I'll try that again.

I guess I could have tried to remove a fuse too.

Thank you.

I agree, we had a tough time starting out smoothly when we first got our X5, but it seems to,have smoothed out. Either that or we got used to the pedal.
