Default wanting to change brake pads

Hi Guys.

We bought a 2018 xc60 inscription D4 and love it so far! But I have having to clean the brake dust on my wheels as the pads let off soo much dust.

Has anyone changed their pads to ceramic ones with good results. If so can i please have the website link or model of the pads etc.

Should i even change the brake pads at an independent workshop? would it void my warranty? ( i still have about 4 years left)

Thanks

I've used organic, metallic, ceramic pads on may different cars over the year. Ceramics will throw somewhat less dust - but that may be a visual thing as they give off more of a sandy colored dust vs the dark color organic pads do, but they still send off dust. With that said, the OEM organic pads provide the best all around brake feel and performance (ceramics and metallics will wear your rotors faster ) so after trying various big name products, I'm back to using OEM.
