Rotors do not last forever. Wear is inevitable.

Ok i should have worded that differently, will they wear faster than normal? Are those pads quite hard?

Which QFM pads, the A1RM? The A1RM will definitely wear rotors quicker than a normal street pad, but that's the compromise with any pad of that level. It will largely depend on how you drive the car, if you baby it, the rotors will wear faster than if you constantly give it a hard time.

They aren't too bad on dust for day to day. Definitely had worse. Bendix Ultimates are the dustiest I've ever seen, and they are nowhere near that.

If you're doing hard braking, lots of high speed stops, then yeah .. probably dust up pretty good which is underderstandable.

If you've got dark rims like me though, hardly noticeable - Even more so if you've got a low offset to which the rotor and caliper is further away from the face of the rim which is the best !!
