I hated as well. My rims are 7-spoke. Definitely much better to handle comparing to what smolck has but I still got irritated and changed all the OEM pads and rotors when it was time. I used centric premium rotors and possi quiet ceramic pads from zeckhausen. After the brake job, I had zero dust. Yes not reduced dust. Almost zero amount of dust. I forgot the last time I cleaned my wheels. BUT I lost about 30% of braking power. I still miss my original powerful brakes (not the dust)...

I later heard much better ceramic pads. I am pretty sure none of them are as good as the dusty OEM ones (there's gotta be a trade off.)
Even if it is dustfree, I would NOT recommend the above combo I used. My brakes never felt like BMW brakes since then...
