Fronts are exactly the same.
Rears on the V6 will be smaller discs and different pads unless it is a very late V6.

i am looking to replace discs & pads front and rear in readiness for me MOT in October, looking at black diamond g6 grooved discs, with black diamond predator pads all round. viable choice?
not sure about sizing either, brakes arent really my thing tbh but i have somebody who will fit for me, so i can put what i want on my motor.
front discs i have been looking at are 281x15mm ,
rear discs are 251x10mm
would these be the right fitments for my car before i go off & order

No.
Those sizes are for very early 8v JTD with solid discs front & rear.

Fronts will be 284x22mm
Rears may be 276x10, but could be 251x10. You'll need to measure yours.

Your rear pads should be the ones without the springs on top (same as 147)
