New Honda brake pads not as dusty?

I had the dealer replace my front and rear brake pads last weekend (35k miles on my AV6.) I've driven about 250 miles since and my wheels are surprisingly dust free. Could my prayers have come true, has Honda made a low-dust brake pad? Or this some sort of cruel joke?

I recently was forced to replace my '03 Coupe with an '05 Coupe due to an accident and I can say that the pads found in the '05 are about 100% better when it comes to brake dust. They produce little or no dust buildup on the rims, thank god!

The first set of 7g brakepads had a new compound that wasn't working out so hot, heating up too easily and warping rotors and such. Props to Honda for fixing the problem
