    Im looking for a set of discs and pads for my A3 - see signature at bottom.

    Regarding the pads if possible I would like low dust pads, in the past on a older car I had EBC green stuff and i got on quite well with them but one think i loved was the low amount of dust they produced compared to the standard pads - it was a lot lighter coloured so did not show up as much on the alloys.

    What other pads are there that dont give of the horrible black dust?

    Thanks in advance Matt

    Black Diamond grooved discs with EBC Greenstuff pads - had them on my past 4 cars and been perfect in all situations.

    the bells and outer rims don't rust either, not like the standard Audi ones ;) so they still look good after a few months.

    I'm not absolutely sure, but I seem to remember being told that kevlar pads are the ones which don't shed much dust - and i think greenstuff are made from that material...although some racer once told me that the best performing brakes always drop a lot of dust and that should always take precendence over wanting your alloys to remain clean between washes!
