And actually I was able to use the original backing plates on the front and one of the two on the back without issue. I did not experience or hear the pads shifting during bedding. I will look and see if they are up against the pins and report back.

Must admit that the pictures aren't mine. I stole them from, but I did draw those awesome little arrows. I may look into putting the backing plates on the front pads since you say they fit on your car. I don't want to ruin the ceramic inserts by having the pad shift within the caliper.
