No excessive brake dust to report on my Sport Line 335i. At least compared to my old E90 it seems less of an issue. Still there but not bothersome.

I noticed this after only two days. I had my car Opti Coated and also did the wheels. My guy who did the Opti Coat said it would help this and also against pitting.

it is only the m sport's in the US that have the brake dust issue. it is pretty bad. 20 miles and there's signs of brake dust. 100 and the front wheels look powder coated!

you can get the pads for the non Msport 335i's
they're about 170 for the front set. the calipers are the same sport and non msport in the US, just different pads.
