Low Dust Aftermarket Pads for E70

Has anyone installed low dust aftermarket pads on their 4.8i E70? If so, are you satisfied with them?

The only pads I can find available online for the 4.8i (front and rear) are the EBC Redstuff, but I've read some negative reviews on these on Bimmerfest. Axxis and Hawk have ceramic pads listed for the fronts on the 2007 3.0is and for all first generation X5s, but not the 2007 or 2008 4.8i.

Any help is appretiated, for I hate the dirty wheel look.
Carpe Diem

I'm working on addressing this as well. I'll be putting a call into the national BMW brake expert, Dave Zeckhausen.


I put the Axxis pads he sold me on my 2005 4.4i, and on all my M3s over the years. He doesn't have anything listed on his site for the E70 yet, but he's worth a phone call.

This is on my list after the aero kit, 20" wheels and running boards. So probably sometime in late summer.
