Smile Disc Brake replacement time

I am needed to replace my brakes on a 2006 Touareg V6TDI as the warning light is showing. It is showing around 180,000kms and has already had them changed at around 90,000kms.
I understand there are several pad types that may fit. The car has 17" wheels. My compliance plate shows the PR # as front 1LC and rear 1KF. Can anyone give me some part numbers for these parts as it is a little confusing being sure I get the correct ones. I need discs, pads and wear indicators.
Has anyone any recommendations where they may be available at a good price in Australia or overseas? Is the use of drilled discs worthwhile? What about ceramic pads? My car is always filthy with pad dust. USA suppliers do not list this model as they were never available in that market. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

I tried slotted and drilled rotors on a car once. I never noticed a difference other than people pointing at the front wheels and saying "Oh, you have slotted/drilled rotors!" LOL!

I am going to replace rotors and pads in March too. 172000 km on the clock (no warning icon yet). When swapping for winter wheels the mechanic visually inspected the brakes and said it should be done now. As the first iteration in your search consider the following numbers for PR-1KF type rear brakes*:
7L0 698 451 G, 7L0 907 637 C, 7L8 615 601 C
may be (I emphasize) that's what you need.
Anyway, as for me, when placing an order, first, I am going to contact sales manager by phone and reconfirm (one by one) the positions (in the list) are correct (before I give the green light for processing).
*I can't find 1LC, only 1LB, 1LE, 1LT, 1LU.

Forgot to mention. I know a very-very useful site, where you type in your VIN code and the entire original VW catalogue is available for you, VIN specific!!! So, you immediately jump to correct number and don't waste you time selecting a variant among the all available options. (The address is in Cyrillic letters and the content is in Russian). May be you have some equivalent in English?

Njord .... i think a few people might struggle with Russian but glad you posted .... thanks

on another note if your wear indicators have not come on yet you would be wasting at least 6-10kms of pad life.

In my experience when the warning light came on i had around 6mths or 6-10kms left

The touareg warnings are renowned for coming on really really early

Thanks for a sage tip. I just want to consolidate all tasks into one Termin.
Let's consider it as a part of preventative maintenance schedule/program (as they do in aviation industry) mentioned by Stuart, aka hedditch. Tell me I'm Nuts

Thanks guys for the suggestions. I am having troubles with the Russian web site. I would love to find that site in English. Njord I notice that you have a R5 TDI. Of course they have different rotors due to stud pattern. Odessa is correct in saying I have plenty of time to arrange a brake replacement as there is plenty of pad left. I will continue my search. Thanks.

Found interesting site showing VW genuine part numbers and parts pictures. Need to search bottom of site for these. Also shows Vin # selection. Does not help me exactly as it has not got Australian model. I believe what I need is the same as 2006 V10.

That is not what I meant. You'll be able to get the expandable sketches & part numbers there (all VIN specific) and available offers online, etc. Not just car's package recapitulation.
See more printscreens attached.

Send me your VIN by PM, I will try for you.

So, today I ordered rotors and pads, all originals, except the rear pads (subs Brembos, VAG wasn't available). Not sure if it is a good practice to mix?
