Brakes 159 1.9JTDM

My brakes are feeling a bit spongey and juddery, so looking at replacing them, I've read countless posts on here about recommended ones etc, I was going to get some MTEC's, but to be honest, I just don't need anything super sporty with massive stopping power.

I'm on a bit of a budget, so am thinking of just getting Pagid discs and pads from Eurocarparts (they have 10% with code), so it keeps the price down. The question is, what is the difference between the discs and pads they have? I've put my reg plate in and has two types for fronts and two for back. The only difference I can see is price, spec looks to be the same. As with pads, they all seems different shapes, which would I need?

What I think I need:
Pagid Brake Disc (Front) Product Code : 104510868 x 2
Pagid Brake Disc (Rear) Product Code : 104510888 x 2
Pagid Brake Pad (Front) Product Code : 101510338
Pagid Brake Pad (Rear) Product Code : 101510368

I'm looking at 197.59 (with 10% discount)

Could some one tell me if this looks like the right set up for the 1.9 Lusso 159?

Or if anyone could tell me what I do need / a better set up for a similar price.

Thank you Alfa-ites, you guys rock

Your 1.9 Lusso will have 305mm front discs, there was 2 types fitted depending on chassis number but I think the only difference is the type of screw used to hold them on and they have different pads depending on year, the early cars have single piston calipers that use the pads where one of them has a big spring clip in the middle of the pad, the later cars, from about 2008 onuse small Brembo 4 piston calipers that use the rectangular pads with 2 holes near the corners that the locating pins go through.
