Which brake pads

I've got a 95 e36 with M3 brakes up front and I need new pads. I'm not sure what pads I currently have, but iirc, they're ATE and they have served me well although they're dustier than I would have liked. This is my summer car and it will never see a track. I don't drive it hard and just want less dusty yet effective brakes.

I like bimmerspecialist.ca and am looking at their options:

Part#: 34 11 1 162 535

AKEBONO Your Price: $100.99

BOSCH Your Price: $54.99

GENUINE BMW Your Price: $108.99

JURID Your Price: $88.99

TEXTAR Your Price: $64.99

I'm thinking the OEM/"genuine", Jurid, and Textar are all dusty, no idea about the Bosch, and that Akebono are less dusty.

Suggestions on which ones, or where to get same/similar pads cheaper?

Less brake dust = Less bite. I'd suggest OE manufacturer Textar.
