Orxan, if you like your brakes that is OK. Nobody told you to change them.
I was happy this summer with no brake dust. However, my combo did not stop when I wanted to. It happened once. At 50 Km/hr (31 mph) you travel roughly 14 m/sec. At 100 Km/hr (60 mph) it's 28 m/sec. That second before the pads warm up is what turned my handknuckles white on my steering wheel. It's to many meters to be taken by surprise. For me.
Peace
