What type/brand of brake pads produce the LEAST amount of brake dust for the Elise and where do I buy them? Thanks!

Not that easy... some searching will turn up Porterfield R4S (?) for least brake dust, but hard on rotors, so you may have to replace them more often.

I am assuming that rotor dust is much less problematic than brake dust. ;)
I just bought some new pads from Sector 111.(HB180F.560) I plan on installing them 5/23/09. I'll post my opinion on them a week or two later. *Warning Hijack in progress* btw... Is it difficult to bleed the brakes? I think this would be cake.

Yes, huge thread discussing both brake pads and bleeding... (not the one about rooting around in the dash for the keyless range mod)
