New OEM brake pads

I'm shopping for new brakes for my E92 335. I've been thinking about ceramic pads to avoid the brake dust I've been dealing for the last 5 years. I know I've read that the newer cars don't have the same brake dust problems the earlier years had becauce the pads were different. Is that really true, and if I were to buy new OEM pads would those be the ones I get? If OEM doesn't still have the dusting problem, that's what I'd probably go with. Tischer seems to have pretty good prices on brake kits.

I'm also open to suggestions for pads/rotors.

I have an 07 335i and just replaced the rear brakes with OEM pads and rotors from Tischer. The dust is the same as it used to be. I also just bought my wife a 2013 X5. Brake dust is the same as it ever was. Are you replacing just the pads or pads, rotor and sensor. Tischer packages them up with caliper grease for a decent price.

Very low dust on my 335is factory pads _ lots & lots of dust on my factory 330Ci pads.

Same here. Practically no dust on my wife's 335is, although I'm sure that the Ferric Gray wheels help hide it a bit. On the M Roadster, so much dust that a 4 mile round trip to the grocery store after a wash and the front wheels are gray and need washing again.

On the 335i you'll want to step away from the genuine pads if you want a lower dusting pad, even the newest version of the pad from BMW is a rather dust pad. The best option would be to go to an aftermarket pad, Hawk HPS pads are our most popular for the 335i, they are a performance upgrade pad that's also going to be very low dusting. Since you're looking at a service kit check otu the ones found HERE, the performance kits utilize Hawk HPS pads, our ECS GEOMET rotors, and ship free inside the continental USA.

I have had excellent luck with Akebono pads and Zimmerman rotors - both on my car and my wife's X3.

I do about a 1000 miles a month & wash the car about once a month. One pic is recently washed front wheel the other front has about a bit over 3 weeks dust on it. Would have added the 330 wheels but all you would see is black after two weeks

The difference between the wheels condition is a bit closer then it looks because the clean wheel is a flash picture while the dirty one is with no flash.

StopTech makes some really nice alternatives to the stock pads as well:

http://zeckhausen.com/BMW/E90.htm

StopTech Street Performance brake pads are StopTech's newest formulation, offering an unusual combination of good bite, low noise, and extremely wide temperature range, making them ideal as "dual use" street to medium track pads. These are the standard pads included with StopTech big brakes and are now available for many OEM applications. These are Zeckhausen Racing's preferred high performance street pads.

Thanks for all the info and suggestions. I usually try to stick to OEM parts but I think I'm leaning toward trying aftermarket. Lots of choices, but some sound really good.

Orient - Did you new OEM pads replace the old pads, or are they both still available? I'm guessing that if I decided to go OEM I'd have to specifically ask for the new part numbers?

Just an update:
I decided to go with Akebono pads and Zimmerman rotors. I am very happy with the results. The brakes feel a little different, but not in a bad way. It stops really well, and after a few weeks of driving there is zero dust. I wish I would have done this sooner.

Which Akebono pads did you get, and where did you order them from?

I got them both at Auto Parts Warehouse on the 'net. I got the Euro ceramic pads and the coated rotors.
