BTW, I've been running aftermarket brake pads for years on all my BMWs and have had no ill effects. I've been enjoying clean wheels on my X5 for over a year and would never go back to the dusty stock pads.
My experience has been similar. I think the OEM pads are just cheap and many of the aftermarket pads are superior.
