M Sport Brake Pad alternatives

'18 440i Coupe with track package, including M Sport brakes (blue calipers). Brakes work and feel great, but wow, the dust is like track pads. Has anyone with M Sport brakes found a replacement pad that performs about as well but dusts considerably less?
Thanks,
John

No ceramic brake, unless made from compound in addition to appropriate rotor on true M models, will perform like semi-metalic pad.
You can try ATE ceramic or Textar E-Pad, but it won’t be the same.
As one engineer said: European drivers care about stopping not dust. American drivers care about dust, not stopping.
The reason why F30 models in non-M configuration have mediocre brake response is complaints by North American customers. European customers still get good ole BMW pads that dust like crazy.
