Help Help please - which glow plug for 1.9JTDm 16V?

I'd appreciate some help, please. I want to replace the glow plugs on my 05 156 1.9JTDm 16V.

I've been looking around but there is obviously a difference between the the 8-valve and 16-valve engines. And the cost is about 50% different too!

The reason I want to change these is, like so many other experiences on here, I have trouble starting the car from cold during cold temperatures (with lots of grey smoke from the exhaust). Once the car has been running, I have no further problems for the rest of the day - nor is it a problem in warmer weather. I have been told by a mechanic that this is a classic symptom of failed/failing glow plugs.

The AR manual is no help so I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Many thanks!
