OK! You have up to 1000 miles till rivets will contact the rotors, sensor is on left front wheel and rear right , regarding pads I recently instaled PBR DELUXE PLUS- not much dust but little bit squeal, if you want completly quiet brakes instal original BMW or Pagid organic pads (very dusty).

Thanks Zibby. I will probably go with the original BMW pads. I had the same dilemma with our A4 and dusty pads but aftermarket ones always squeeled so bad that I ended up putting Audi pads on.
