Brakedust problem

Since I am a recent Bimmer owner, I have noticed that most of the Bimmers I see have ugly black brake dust on the front wheels, (mine included). I also own a Volvo xc90 and went to ceramic pads which solved the same problem.
Are there any solutions? I was told that ceramic weren't suggested for my car from the dealer....
My car is a 2001 330cic.

Check out Textar Epads. Pretty much the same as OEM without the brake dust.

Axxis Deluxe pads are nearly dust free, but give up a bit of the initial bite. They're perfectly fine for the street. Not the track though.

Axxis Ultimate pads are less dusty than BMW pads, and have better bite. They're also good for the track.
