Brake dust less with F15 vs E70?

Hi all. Trading my 2013 X5D for a 2015 X5D. I noticed that the new ones don't seem to get black wheels as mine does. Is this my imagination or did BMW change brake pads?

My 2013 is perfect. Made the mistake of driving my brother's new 15 X5D and was hooked.

Thanks

My F15 dusts much less than my e70 did. My 2011 335i also dusts much less than my previous BMWs.

I only have 4K on my F15, but the brake dust seems much less than on my E70s (2008 and 2012).

Yeah- I never get brake dust with my F15 as I did in my E70. The E70 was bordering on ridiculous. I wonder how much the air curtain design contributes to this...

F15 is way less and to be honest didn't even think about it! I'm at 13K, when I bought my F15 I waxed the rims as I did with the E70. Never have even seen a build up. The E70 was crazy, even with two coats of wax on the rims I always had dust especially on the front rims.

My F16 seems to be dusting way less than my E70 and E71. With my Es, it seemed like they'd be dirty again only a few days after washing. When I washed my car on Sunday, I didn't even wash the wheels.

I was about to ask the same question as the OP Glad to hear that the F15 dusts less. Can someone take some pictures of their rims that have not washed their car in over a week? Usually within a week my front wheels are black on my E70.

Thanks everyone

I am flabbergasted. My car is at the dealer three weeks after my order! Dealing with the largest dealer in NY really works!
