Best no dust brake pads?

Getting a 2014 Modern Line 535xi in about 8 weeks and want to put dustless brake pads on it ASAP. Familiar with Akebono & Hawk but curious what everyone else likes.

Also have a '14 435xi M-Sport and the brake dust is driving me nuts. Unfortunately, have not found any pads that fit the M-Sport brakes yet.

I heard that Akebonos aren't as bad as others, but honestly you'll probably be hard pressed to find a brake pad that has minimal dusting for these cars. BMWs are notorious for really bad brake dust.

My 11' 535 M sport has very little dust (if any). This is a big surprise especially compared to my brother's e92 M sport which turns black from a short 10 mile drive. I'm not exactly sure what pads are used (since its still under warranty and the dealer recently re-did pads and rotors last month. I remember asking my dealer about replacing OEM pads with dustless out of curiosity and I was told that It could void the warranty, so check with your dealer first...

i have very little dusting issues and i wash the car and wheels frequently.

there are wheel waxes that are supposed to help with this stuff, i've yet to look into them though.
