I purchased new red stuff pads for '11 QP S and these are what they sent ? Anyone else received the same sets ? Aston Martin and Mercedes ?

This is specifically why I go right to Mercedes and buy the factory Brembo pads. $125.00. Done. And, the Mercedes boxed pads come with the extra back plates to eliminate squeal. High performance and silent.

For the front I believe there are just two brake pads type: for the 4 piston and 6 piston calipers , right?

Yes, you have a base package with a 4 piston front and 2 piston rear caliper and then the better one is a 6 piston front caliper with a 4 piston rear caliper... Jason

When you install them let us know if they are squeezing. I was afraid to buy reds.
I was worried too but looks like more recent posts are happier with them. Not sure about a 1500 mile bedding in process though !

Also note these pads does NOT include the sensor wear cable (like OEM) so you better check them at every annual service maintenance.

Success, and the old wear sensor fit right into the new pads ! So far theres a notable difference from the OEM but only at 100 miles on them. No noises.....yet 🤞

Why didn't you buy yellows?
It seems much better in these two important factors (at least for me) : cold bite and low noise
Everything I've seen the Red are always the recommended series for the QP so I went with the reds.
