You may be right! I have these pads on my 4runner and just looked at the dust...

Very little dust and a silvery dust that does not show much. They are pretty good pads also IMO, many 3rd gen 4Runner people have upgraded to Tundra brakes and I almost did but tried these pads instead and found them adequate. If they are rotor friendly then that's a trifecta.

I have Bosch Quietcast on my 2001 A8 and they are great other than creating black dust, which I ignore. I have sports cars and bikes with brake dust on the wheels all the time and I am just used to it. No idea what pads are on my S8, they are relatively recent but pretty dusty. Good bite though. Similar brakes and similar dust to the typical PBR DustMasters I usually put on my P cars, some of which have pretty much the same brakes as the S8.

I will look into ThermoQuiets as a potential upgrade.
