I am feeling confident and thinking of replacing my front and rear brake pads. Any suggestions for good replacement pads? Something with minimal dust and at a decent price?

Only one way to fly, IMHO if reduced dust is your goal, with minimal or zero change in OEM braking performance or feel, and that is: (drum roll)...

Axxis Deluxe Plus, from Zeckhausen Racing (on-line). I think it's something like $74 for front set and $28 or so for the rear. Anyway, Dave Zeckhausen is awesome and when you call hiim to order, ask him all of your brake-related questions. He is very knowledgable and patiently answered all of my questions.

BTW, I went with Brembo OEM-type rotors for my 540, purchased from getcoolparts.com for a mere $194 for all four, shipped to my door.
