    The volume of brake dust is due to the larger brake pad area
    Take a look at the amount of brake dust on a Bentley!

    I put a good coat of Wheel wax on, it doesn,t stop the dust, but it makes cleaning it off easier.

    EBC Green Stuff pads do have very low dust, one of their main marketing spiels. However, with them being such a hard compound they EAT standard brake discs. If you upgrade to Green Stuff pads, IMO you'll need to match them with EBC's discs.
