My 128i is the worst vehicle I've owned for brake dust. My Suzuki SUV goes more than twice as long between washings and still has virtually no dust on the wheels. I wonder if part of the issue on BMWs might be airflow. If they deliberately get the air moving out through the wheel, it would move brake dust out where we see it and also keep our brakes a little cooler.
