I'm getting massive black brake dust on both back rims. Nothing on the front wheels. What's going on here?

Seems to be a common problem there is a thread about it somewhere. I plan on haveing it checked when I bring mine in for it's next service.

Traction control kicking in due to moderate acceleration seems to be the culprit, that, and high-friction brake-pads which leave more dust...but nothing stops like a Benz, price you pay for safety and performance.

Any MB techs care to chime in on this? Maybe the traction control is the cause. I also think the airflow (directed by design) over the front brakes helps keep the front wheels cleaner.

But the line nothing stops like a Benz, suggesting MB brakes are the best, I wish....:)
