Acura TSX Brakes
"4. The alloy wheels get filthy the same day after you wash the car. Too much black brake dust."
Acura must be getting serious about competing with the A4 and 3-series :-). The German cars are notorious for black brake dust accumulating especially on the front wheels. This isn't from "cheap" pads, but rather high-perf pads that are intended for stopping quickly from Autobahn speeds.
Actually, considering how much wheel cleaner I go through on my A4, I'm surprised at 45K miles to still be on the first set of pads! I guess I will be used to it if I end up with a TSX.
