Default Correct EBC Yellowstuff P/N for R56?

I'm trying to figure out what the correct part numbers for a 2011 R56 hardtop S is for EBC yellowstuff pads. It's confusing because sites such as summit racing show two different model front pads and another site shows only 1 of those two and same thing for the rear pads. Does anyone know exactly which part numbers i'm supposed to look for to purchase? Thanks!

edit: i went on the EBC website already but couldn't find any application guide of sorts either

The two different part numbers have to do with weather or not you have the JCW (Brembo) brakes.
Here is WMW's brake section which should help. And of course, the rears only take one part number.

Would like to know your opinion on the yellowstuff pads when you get them.

Unfortunately, the pictures on the site are too small to see the P/N's.

Why yellowstuff? Do you plan to do a lot of track time? I had yellows on my last car that never saw track and they were way too much because they needed to warm up first beforegiving any good braking. That is why when I did the brakes on my r56 I went with reds. Way better for the street then yellows.
