I don't have Brembos, but I have read here that people are swapping out their brake pads for Powerstop's just because of the brake dust. Either the Z23, or the Z26 pads.

No plans on swapping out my 4 piston Brembo pads.

I like the Brembo initial bite, and dusting is not an issue. They dust some, but clean up easily when I wash my car at the local DIY high pressure car wash.

I've got 28k miles on my '16 SP, and there's a ton of pad left, and the rotors are looking fine.

Somebody on this forum (Maybe @Cuda340 ?) posted a good cross section of a Brembo pad, explaining the design choices. I can't seem to find it now.

Anyway, Brake Dust is a normal characteristic of many performance cars. I agree with 19johned53, the factory Brembo pads are the best pads for our cars. If you can live with some dust, they do everything else very well. For street/spirited driving in a heavy car, in all temperature ranges, even occasional track use, I would go with factory 4 piston Brembo pads and rotors. They have the best match up of compromises. They even seem to last a long time. It doesn't surprise me that Brembo doesn't offer a different pad for our cars. I don't see how they could get it much better.
