EBC Pads Over Rated

I recently put EBC Greenstuff front pads on my C280.
I replaced the rotors, chamfered the edges and flushed the entire brake system at the same time. I bed-in the pads and rotors to EBC intructions.
It's been 10 weeks now and the stopping power and dusting is worse than the stock set up.
I've modified many cars running them on Carbotech Panthers or Hawk SPs with great results.
Everywhere I look, EBC Greenstuff pads are supposed to incredible. I have found them to be the worst pads I have ever used. Has anyone else had this experience with these pads?

If you do a search under EBC or GREENSTUFF you'll find a lot of comments about the those pads.

the performance is debatable between members, but I think opinions regarding the dust of the Greenstuff vs. the OEM pads were pretty consistent...I'm suprised they are dustier than the OEM's...oh well...
