I have been using EBC Green Pads. I believe they put out about a third less dust than standard pads an that is with EBC Dimpled and Slotted Rotors ( not cross drilled). I highly recommend these pads and rotors.
Textar does make a fine brake pad (although their aftermarket product is not up to par with their OE product), but they are far from low dust. A decent low-dust pad (made by a Textar affiliate) is Mintex.
I have been using Mintex for years on my BMWs and Benzs. They are very low dust pads. The trick is, unlike conventional pads, you have to use hard braking for the first few days to prevent squicking noise later (which is not always that happens).
Fast/Heavy Street Use
Brake well from cold
Effective to above 650°C
Lower dust formula* (read below)
Designed for premium street driving offering better brake effect at loads and speed. EBC Greenstuff has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal. There is no such thing as a NO DUST pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most. All pads create more dust as they are bedding in especially if rotors are worn. Nominal friction coefficient 0.55. For heavier faster cars and vehicles above 200bhp we strongly recommend Redstuff which DOES offer much less dust.
