Do US owners of Q7 suffer from black brake pad dust on the wheels like UK owners? I notice brake dust is less of a problem on US cars, like Ford or GM, and I wonder if European manufacturers use a different pad spec for cars sold in US.

Anybody know?

Cheers, Andy

Yes to first and no to the second. It's the same on both sides of the puddle.

My Q7 3.0 TDI has 300 miles on the clock, and I just ordered Hawk Ceramic Pads to solve this problem. Tis the same on Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, too.
