EBC green brake pads-95 E320

Problem: OEM pads = break dust. Solution: Install EBC greenies.
Result = both front rotors scorched blue, brake fluid boiled turned black/green after 2000 miles.
Non-Benz mechanic topped off resevoir with DOT3 instead of DOT4 mixing the two. Did this cause the fluid to boil?
After about 400 miles on the greenies, still had break dust and from then on.
Now have new rotors and back to OEM pads with loads of dust.
What happened? I suspect installer had wrong pad part for my wheels. Then with the fluid mixture boiling, the master cyclinder was not able to open the pad off the rotor.
I don't know for does it sound? Any advice or answers on this? Thanks.then
