Another FNG

Hello all!

I joined to day so I could take advantage of the wealth of knowledge available here. I belong to some other forums and they are useful/helpful and I hope to find the same results here. I

have an '04 C230 Sport Sedan, silver with tinted windows and that's it. It's actually the wife's car, but I get to enjoy it on occasion.

My main reason for joining currently is in regard to front brake pad replacement. I ordered what I THOUGHT was the correct Hawk pads for the car (part # HB504Z.740) but I'm told these are way too small for the front. Everywhere I look says this is the correct number for this car. Any thoughts? Please don't hammer me with the "use the search" rant. As stated before, this isn't the only forum I belong to so I am fully aware how to look for information.

I have found several useful "how to" posts, but nothing with definite part numbers. I have seen references to cermaic pads available at Auto Zone or O'Reilly's and neither of the local stores have them (or so they say). If anyone has a comprehensive list of part numbers for brands (Hawk, EBC, etc. etc. etc.) that fit these cars, that would be awesome! Thanks in advance!
