i've seen the current models with pretty ugly dust, specially on the fronts and since these shields have been around forever, i assume that it is an ongoing concern. i decided long ago that they were not a good idea and went looking for other options. i've used mintex "red box" pads on another car and noticed someone had them for sale on one of the other forums. it produces a light brown dust and maybe less of it - for me it's a godsend. there's barely any dust after a week and you can just spritz rims with "instant shine" products, wipe, and they're bright and shiny again. it's not a racing pad, there are other mintex pads for that purpose but the red box is good for daily driver applications and they last a relatively long time.
anyone used them on 124's at all? also interested in other options.
