Brake Pad Suggestions for a '95 E420

About 3 months the car got new rotors and pads in the front - all Mercedes OEM. The new pads squeak like nothing I've ever heard before - the kind of resonating that makes heads turn about 1/2 mile before you arrive!

I've been back to the shop countless times - blue stuff on the backs, silicone on the pads, groves cut on pads... About 10 days later the squeaking is back.

I am at my wits end and just want quiet brakes! So, I'm looking for recommendations. Thank you.

What did you have before?

If the problem was not there before, stick with the previous brand!
I question the installation or some other underlying problem (s).
