Dustless Break Pads?

Hi All,

After 33000km, iDrive tells me my rear brake pads need to be changed.
Since I heard Canada does not include brakes in the warranty, I was thinking of installing Dustless brake pads instead of OEM (at least this way, I can keep my rims looking clean longer . Any recommendations of what brand?...I heard Axxis are not too bad...
Do you even recommend non-OEM?

Thanks in advance!

I don't think it is worth it honestly. What is the price difference?

I have not changed my pads out but I have changed out pads on friends 330. I've found if you wash the wheels every week or so there isn't a problem. It is the never or seldom washers that have a big issue with brake dust...
