    I have an automatic E200K and the level of front brake pad dust on the alloys is huge. The car always looks dirty and it is hard to remove. I have sprayed the brake pads and discs with brake dust cleaner, air lined the whole area etc but no real difference. The back wheels are perfect.

    Is there anything that you can to reduce this dust level.

    Cheers

    Yes, fit EBC brake pads, I have had them for years, next time I will use the Red ones.
    You will always get some, but EBC dust just washes off, it is much reduced

    Fit EBC low dust pads

    Thanks for the advice
    Can you get the EBC pads in normal motor factors or are they a main dealer part

    Cheers
