I think they all had vented disks. My 2001 model does.

Re: 156 1.8 discs

The 1.8 has vented discs from 2001 onwards.

If the car is 2002 onwards then you have the same rear brake setup as the 156 GTA.

The 2.0 has always had vented. You will find that your front brakes are identical.

For what it's worth I'd get a set from Red Dot www.reddotracing.co.uk.

They sorted me out with some 20 Grooves. They are really good.

Hope this helps.
