My brake discs and pads are due for changing and just double checking cus i've never replaced the discs before on a car, but there are vented and solid discs.

From viewing i would say that the discs on my car are vented, i have a 147 1.6 ts lusso. Would this model come with a specific type of disc on??

and does it make a difference if it does end up that i have solid discs, would i b able to replace them with vented ones for better performance or would this result in me needing to replace more than just the discs and pads?

Vented & Solid are completely different setups.
Different size discs (apart from being solid or vented)
Different calipers
and different pads.

On a 147, only early 105hp 1.6 had solid front discs.
