Just confirmed today by my dealer that a TSB has been released on the 08's for brake pad replacement for excessive dust. The pads have been ordered for me and should be installed soon.

Is this the same TSB that covers the '06 & '07, updated to include the new model year? Damn, you'd think they would just stop installing dusty brake pads at the factory at some point. :suspiciou

they are high performance pads, thus create alot of dust....but do work well....its up to the individual if you want to get new ones, they likely wont last as long or do as good a job though....IMHO

Anyone seen the TSIB for '08 models? I so much want to get a copy, so I can shove it into the face of the two stealerships that have both denied me the TSIB for my '08 250 AWD (Rallye Lexus and Ray Catena Lexus in NY), claiming that "we didn't notice any excessive brake dust".

I've yet to see anyone show the TSIB has actually been updated for 08.... but some dealers will do it anyway as a courtesy... I'm certainly gonna give it a shot when mine goes in for the 5k service

Anybody come up with the updated TSIB yet? Tundrasolutions.com used to be a great source for all Toyota/Lexus TSIBs, but unfortunately, they weren't able to renew their subscription this year. So now I'm in the dark like everybody else :(

I just checked TIS. The TSB has not been updated to include 2008 models. I haven't heard of a dealer turning away 2008's, though.
