What brake pads have you tried? Are you running standard rotors? My Bendix Ultimates make a heap of dust and squeal like a bitch!

i have bendix standards, get a bit of brake fade coming down mt cootha, but they leave no brake dust at all. But i have a feeling that you cant have them any more (or get new ones installed) cuz they may have asbestos.

i have read that there is dustless bendix performax pads out now, they have only been released several months ago...

if i have to change my rotars soon, i will get cross drilled and slotted, with performax pads :D, i dont want squeely pads

HAHAHA lol @ THEONE.

Dont get advance if you intend to give your car a good run in the hills. Low on dust? yes, good with heat? no! If you cook them you will get hot spots on your rotors and warp them. Speaking from experience here!

I had similar problems a few years ago. Was only geting 20,000ks out of stock pads ant the XR8 pads were dusty and only got 30,000ks. So I changed to Metal kings, they were fantastic on my EB V8, they had very little dust and didnt fade - got almost 50,000ks from them too. Just be aware they need one good stop to warm up and they will eat your rotors. Apart from that they were excellent.

^^^ I agree with the above statement^^^

Couldnt be much different from Ultimates apart from brake dust.
