I need help on the Akebono line of these recommendations which are intended to be forwarded to E39 drivers who innocently ask "which brake pads should I buy" ...

I just found out here, at 4:30am, that "Akebono Euros" are the same as "Akebono Euro Ceramic"; but looking up that to find the exact front/rear pads for the E39 to list for a newbie ... I find a confusingly large array of Akebono pads.

Therefore I need to narrow the Akebono recommendation down to a specific pad name (given there are dozens of "Akebono Euro Ceramics" out there (see details here and here).

So that I can update the OP above ...

Of the dozens available, which specific front/rear Akebono Euro Ceramics are the recommended pad for the E39?
- Akebono EUR763 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic (bmw)
- Akebono EUR681 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR781 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono Euro Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake
- Akebono EUR760 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR919 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR912 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR1060 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR847 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR396 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR819 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR939 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR986 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- Akebono EUR946 EURO Ultra-Premium Ceramic
- etc.
