Replacement Brake Pad Part Number Information

I don't know if anyone else will find this useful, but I thought I might save someone else the same hours of frustration that I experienced.
I went to lube the brake pad contact points and pins in my 2016 MX 75D. Rear pads slid right out with no problems, but the front pads and pins had a lot of corrosion likely due to winter road salt spray. One pad was frozen in place to the point of having to remove the caliper to get it out. When using a wood block and mallet to tap it out, I hit the brake lining and took out a chip, and created some swelling. Not wanting to risk damage to the rotor, I decided to replace both pads on that wheel. [Side note: the reason I waited until 60k miles to do this was because I wrongly assumed that this lubrication had been done by Tesla during the 4 scheduled maintenance sessions I paid for up to 50k miles. The schedule included brake inspection, but the lubrication was clearly never accomplished].
No problem, I say to myself. I'll just jump on the inter-webs and find replacement pads at a local parts store like I've done for the past 40 years. And here's where the multi-hour trip down the rabbit hole began. One site would show a manufacturer's part number compatible with this car, but that same part number on another site would show as incompatible. Some sites only show Teslas from 2017, while others didn't list the 75D in 2016. The BremboUSA site (Brembo brakes are on Teslas) did not provide any information. The information stamped on the pad backing, "FER HP1000/TFF" does not correspond to a part number.
I finally hit gold here: Pads and Discs for TESLA MODEL X (5YJX) 75D AWD
This is the Brembo site for Europe and you can search for brake pad part numbers by model, date of manufacture, and first 5 characters of the VIN.
For my MX 75D, the Brembo front pad part number is P09004 and it is available at Autozone (SKU 1080027). The rear pads are P/N P11024. The front pad part number, according to the site, is the same for essentially all Model S, X, and 3 vehicles. The Model Y did not appear in the list of compatible vehicles for this part number. A set of 4 cost about $111-- expensive, but it's the direct OEM replacement. There may be cheaper compatible replacements from a different manufacturer, but I could not find them and didn't want to take any chances.
Some other notes:
- The wear on the existing pads was negligible. In fact, I did not need to compress the caliper pistons to get the new pads to slide in.
- I did the brake lube on my Model 3 at 12,000 miles and the 2016 MX is less complicated because of the separate parking brake caliper in the rear. Tow mode does need to be engaged (but "Jack Mode" does, of course)
- Especially for those of you in areas where road salt is used, I strongly recommend having this service done every 10,000 miles or so.
