Here are two brake pads from a 105 spider. Can anyone sort out the differences by the code on the back?

I want to guess that the CE and GF are the compounds?

N15 and N17 probably the model it goes to?

The 20817 & 28215 are the Julian calendar dates for production run?

Anyone care to venture in on this?

There was a recent Hot Rod mag technical column on decoding modern brake pad info. Some is production date, etc., but some indicates friction coefficient. I bet you can find online; it's standard, not Alfa-specific.

That is what the lettering in the middle indicates I bet is the friction coefficient. There is certain coding that lets you know if it has more bite or not.
