My experience has been with using crossdrilled rotors and semi-metallic Beck_Arnley pads. Its on a 2.3 190e...and they have 120,000 miles on them. No dust and very progressive braking. I know it ain't supposed to be true...just my experience. I changed the calipers to 300e (larger 288mm) aka 2.3-16 (same part #)and low and behold...braking somewhat?improved, but pads replaced at 12,000 and lots of corrosion on the chrome rims. Thats what tinkering around got me. I think a good compromise is using slotted rotors with a harder low dust pad.
