X5/6M Brake Pad options

I'm in market for new front brake pads but Hawk HPS, Endless, Performance Friction etc. of popular good bite/low dust pads are not available for X5/6M.

Do you guys have any recommendations?

I've had good luck with EBC Red stuff but I don't think they make sizes for the x5/6M.

Is there 4 pads per caliper in the front?

I think EBC redstuff does have a pads for the X5M/X6M with the following parts number
Front: DP32091C
Rear: DP32008C
I just sent them an email and waiting for them to confirm. I am sick of the dust

I just got an email back from EBC and here is what they said:
Quote:
If you have the 4.4 twin turbo, 2010 and up, non hybrid. This is correct
I guess they don't realize that both the 5.0 and M also has 4.4 twin turbo

Awesome. Let me know if they perform better than OEMs. When I had them in my last vehicle, I had to warm them to temp before they stopped squealing. After that, they bit hard.

I want some low dust brake pads too, but I have heard that the pads are hard on the rotors and the rotors will need to be replaced sooner. Does anybody know if this is true???

Not really. Even BMW dealer measure rotors and if they pass the min. requirement spec/thickness, they only replace pads and sensors. So it's not all true.

Im also looking for low dust pads as im tired of the dust also. Are these pads for the X5 50 also or, are they just for the X5M. Please clarify. There site specifically list the X5M and not the X5 50. I was just thinking about putting these on the front since that's where all of the dust shows up. The rears don't dust that bad. Has anyone left the rears alone and just replaced the pads on the front? is this frowned upon?

Looks like EBC is out of front pads at the moment (contacted 3-4 different shops but no one has front pads in stock)so I will only get rear pads (shipped already) for now.
Can I install only rear pads or do I need to wait till front pads arrives? (I'm just wondering if I need to have all 4 in same brand pads like tires or not)

sure you can run different pad front and back, but the oem rear pad doesn't produce that much dust like the front.

Update:
Bad news- I contacted EBC brake USA, Inc. directly to see when they'll have the front pads in stock.
They say the front pad is not released yet and no retailer should sell the pads since it's not been produced yet. They say it could be 1 - 2 months. So we have to wait and see until EBC actually makes and ships the pads to US...
