BMW-One step forward-two back!
My 135i with the Brembo brakes spewed as much dust as my 335i Msport. BMW says Msports have different pads compared to sport line and the other lines.
They are said to be "more aggressive". I think that means, MORE dust.
I wish BMW would have tuned Msport brakes to have better feel on initial engagement.
My 135i and E46 325i had much better brake pedal feel with less pedal travel to initial bite, and less travel under brake modulation.
The brakes are good, they get the job done, but the overall feel has become less "sport" like and more "sedan" like.
