Have I bought the correct disks and pads?

Folks,

any advice appreciated.

I bought (a few weeks back) front disks and pads for my SLK 280 (2005).

I've just been supplied (kindly from this site) with my data card for the motor. Within the data card it appears I have code 486 - Sports Suspension.

On checking the Euro Car Parts website, there are of course various fitment options for disks and pads.

For disks, these include -
- 'Standard' (which I bought)
- 'Sports Package' (these appear to be the same fitting, but ventilated. The car currently has non-ventilated disks.

For pads, the options are -
- 'Special Usage with sports pack'
- 'Without AMG sports pack' (which I bought)
- 'Sports, style and Grand Edition'


The car goes in in a couple of weeks to have the work done. I'm now concerned with the 'sports suspension' noted I may have bought the wrong parts?

Obliged with any advice thanks.
