Default What R Good Low Dust Brake Pads

Who makes a good brake pad that are low dust & might have a little better performance? There not for me, my buddy has a 02 cooper. He's just a normal driver & will never take it to the track, so just street driving. I guess he said he's sick of cleaning the dust off the rims. He just has the stock ones on his cooper now & I though I would ask the experts!!!

Mintex black is long lasting and less dust than Oem.
stay away from the ebc greens, those are stupid. yeah slightly less dust but performance isn't much better than Oem and they didn't last for me.
im sure Paul and Ivan will chime in when they see this.
