I changed the rear brakes first because the set of front pads was incomplete. After changing the rear the squeal was really bad and I figured it was the fronts. I change the fronts and now it is deafening. Maybe these are not meant for stock rotors. I had hoped it would go away after a 1000 miles, but it has only gotten worse. I probably wouldn't do these again.

Amazon says the Akebono EUR779 is not the righ part for 1999 Mercedez C280. Their information is wrong. I ordered this part and installed it on my 1999 C280. It is a perfect fit and the right part for 1999 C280.
I ordered Akebono Euro Ceramic brake bads for both front and rear along with ATE PremiumOne slotted rotors. It is a great combination. The pedal seems little soft at first, but you get used to it after a while. The stopping power is good and after putting 800 miles on the set, my wheels are still very clean. I highly recommend these pads.

June 26, 2012: I would like to update my review. After few thousand miles, the brakes started to squeak. I took it back to my trusted mechanic, he cleaned and re-greased the back of the pads, they still squeak. I later learned that Akebono and ATE Premium Slotted Rotors are BAD combination. The stopping power is fine, except in real high speed emergency stop situations. I would still recommend the Akebono pads, for their almost no brake dust feature. But don't get any slotted or drilled rotors. Get regular rotors and I think you will be fine.

Pedal feel is gone and pedal travel is longer. No squeal though. I guess that's the price to pay for low dust.

I put these pads on the rear axle of my wife's Merc Benz SLK280. When I took the car for a test drive I was not too impressed. But now that the pads are broken-in, the car stops much quicker than before. Braking is quiet, smooth, quick and solid. Brake dust is not a problem at all. I feel better knowing that my wife's car has good brakes. I have Akebono pads on my Acura and they are great. To most people, Akebono may not be a household name. But you can be sure that their brake pads are some of the best you can buy.

I ordered this ceramic brake pads for my SLK 230 2003 US model and I must admit that it's the best brake pads I had so far! These ceramic brake pads are way better than stock brake pads that I had. My stock brake pads produced so much brake dust that cleaning my wheels was enough just for maximum a week! The material is really good and it fits my SLK 230 perfectly! Brake pads are more quiet and after a month of everyday driving my wheels are still clean! I was really amazed! Also it they seem to be more responsive than my stock pads.
I replaced it myself. It's a 15 minute job for both rear wheels including removing the wheel and jacking up the car. Just take the pin out, take the old pads out, squeeze the piston gently and (slowly) back in place, then put new brake pads and secure it with the pin. Easy job!
My brake pads didn't have a sensor on the rear wheels, so these ones doesn't come with the sensor.
We'll see how long does these last. I replaced my stock ones after 38,000 miles. Compared to the price of the stock Mercedes brake pads these Akebono ones cost just a few dollars more, but the quality is way better as I said! I purchaed these brake pads along with (Akebono EUR710 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic Brake Pad Set). A good word of note here. Amazon says that Akebono EUR710 don't fit Mercedes SLK. That's false. I searched Google and on every website they're compatible with SLK 230. I decided to take a risk and ordered them from Amazon, since the shipping was free. They fit perfect! I also installed it myself. 30 minute job.
All in all Great quality and super fast shipping from the seller!
