Ceramic pads for 435 with M-Sport brakes?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Picked up our new 435Xi with M-Sport brakes yesterday and already fed up with the brake dust after only 20 miles. I've looked all over and can't find any manufacturer that offers ceramic pads yet and was hoping that someone here has had better luck.

I've put ceramic pads on every new car that we've gotten since 2002 and love the lack of brake dust and have never found a loss of braking power. Can anyone help?

I second this.
We need ceramic pads!
I've been searching for replacement pads because the dust is obnoxious.

Has anyone found anything?

they are most likely not ceramic, but some folks have used Porterfield R4-S pads with good results. ie. better pedal feel and less dust than factory.

Wanted to bump this. Are there any ceramic pads on the market for the M Sport brakes?

Count me as one of those people. Much much less dust than the OEM pads on the M Sport brakes.

Ended up putting a set on my 335 too. I love the improved feel and the amount of dust I have on the wheels after two and a half weeks is like two days of stock m sport. Well worth the price of admission.
