Has anyone replaced 08 SLK 55 brake pads?

Need some help on relacing brakes on 2008 SLK 55.
Mine has the two piston on each side in the front, And the rears are single pistons on each side.
I need part numbers, Or any other info you guys can give me.
The OEM pads are good, But the brake dust is really bad.
I clean the wheels every day before driving off.
If anyone can share any info on this it would be great.
Any suggestion would be great too.

Thank You

Here's a post from another thread but I don't know what model year his 55 is.

IIRC, dsb had good comments on the posi-quiet pads but his was on a 2005-2007 SLK 55 (before the brake calipers were changed to the smaller ones).
