Default Brake Dust from Brembo Brakes

I know some of you guys on here own 5th or 6th Gen Camaros. I own a 2017 SS I bought new. I only have just over 2,000 miles on it (it's not my daily driver). Since it was new I have noticed it produces a lot of black brake dust even now after 2,000 miles that really turns the silver wheels sort of a dark gray. Is this something that lessens as the brakes get more broken in, or is it a continuing problem? I asked my dealership service dept. about it and they just said that it's the price one pays for having high performance brakes and wasn't likely to lessen any.
I know I have seen numerous Mercedes and BMW's especially with much brake dust on mainly the front wheels. My Camaro has equal dust on the front and back wheels. I am constantly having to clean all 4 wheels. Let me know your experiences with your Camaros and brake dust. Thank you.

FWIW, my Buick Regal GS with Brembos does the same thing. Blackened wheels shortly after cleaning. Won't go away, sorry. But, niether will the awesome braking.
GM did offer a lower dust pad for the Buicks due to complaints but not sure if something similar is offered for the Camaro. I'll try to check.

Get some PowerStop Z26 pads. Your dust will be reduced by about 95%.

We have a 2015 SS Sports Sedan with the Brembos and the same dust issue - this suggestion has been posted on the SS forums as well. I just ordered a set of the Z26 pads and will swap them out when the winter tires come off for the season.
