At the suggestion of another forum member I recently ordered and installed ACG Carbon Kevlar High Performance Brake Pads for both the front and rear of my F90 M5C and I could not be happier.

While It's only been 100 miles I can report that dust is minimal and a huge improvement over the OEM pads; zero noise or squeal either. With the OEM pads my wheels were dirty after any short trip so vastly improved in this regard.

The brakes with the new pads are very responsive and bite feels OEM with zero brake fade; did several 60-0 / 100-0 stops.

Many thanks to Girard at ACG.

Ah, ok.
Cuz I was on their website, and every click it brings me to a virus site.
Seems like it is not well maintained.
I'll give them a call tomorrow. Thanks for the PM.

Awesome! Please keep updating as you get more miles on the pads.

Brother, you're the man. Thx for turning me on to ACG; just hit up Girard to thank him.

Nothing like quiet brakes and clean wheels ....

Steve, will snap some pix this weekend but rest assured the difference is night and day. Went a week before last wash and the wheels looked very clean. Very light layer of dust after a week.
