excessive break dust

Postby Tosh21 » Thu May 01, 2014 7:38 am

has anyone had issues with loads of break dust on their tezz? The rears don't seem to be too bad but that might because the wheels are back so you cant see it as much but the fronts are gunmetal and they are always COVERED in break dust. I washed my car and my wheels were black from dust the day after, I didn't even drive it hard. It's not a huge issue but having a white car it gets all over the body and just looks horrible.

Could it be from the car having cheap low quality pads?

sick of washing my car every 2 or 3 days

100% right there! I am running genuine pads and have silver wheels, no dust at all.

Sweet, cheers! I'll try some new pads on the next service
