Do ceramic brake pads wear out rotors faster? (2008 BMW 328)

Do ceramic brake pads wear out rotors faster?

Not neccessarily. Depends on the brand. Ceramics tend to be less dusty and generally wear the rotor less but not always. Metalics are the same. Search brake pads on a site like TireRack.com. They sell brake pads and rate them for dust, noise and rotor wear.
