Glad to see the front wheels are clean after 2 days.

Almost dust free!

If you got squeaky brakes, or want smoother braking feel (=less BMW brake pad 'bite) then you can try this..
Akebono EUR1504 for 528i,520i
EUR1409 for 535i .. not sure about 550i
Hi Grimlock,

Are you still using the Akebono pad, you still recommend them?
I am going to change my front pad, also having the squeak problem, I hope to have better brake feel after change them.
