Is it only me or does it seem that the C sheds very little brake dust? I washed her today, and noticed far less dust than any of my other vehicles. Don't get me wrong. I'm certainly not complaining. Anyone else agree?

Yes, little to none here. Rather amazing, isn't it?

That's good to know. I finally finished up my paperwork on my cool vanilla FULLY LOADED 300c, payment is right at $500/mo... I got the greensheet discount and put down quite a bit... :) I should be riding soon.. already got my grill, pillars, and miracle cloths :)

I believe it's got something to do with the chrome cladded wheels.

Who's our Electrical Engineers out there? Maybe it's got to do with resistance to static.

Could be just ceramic pads, i know i have them on my suburban and have very little brake dust. Or some special German pad secret LOL

Ceramic pads on the Enzo cost $6000, not the carbon fiber rotors, just the pads. If there is any ceramic in our pads it is likely a few fine particles. Clearly it is the pad material and perhaps the chrome cladding, now I only have water spots to deal with :p .

I think it has to do with the pads. The rims on my 2500HD never got much if any brake dust on them. But the wife's Silhouette. The front rims will be covered in brake dust within a week of washing it.

It's definitely the brake pads. My 2001 Intrepid was also dust free. On every other car I have owned in the past 5 years, I have had to change the brake pads for this reason alone...
