Did you have the judder before all the new parts were fitted ?
Tracking on the C5 is different to other cars since the front and rear axles are not the same width so if the garage was not aware of this the tracking might now be out if it has been adjusted.
It might be the tyres need balancing a bit better. When the new discs were installed was the disc run out checked, should be less than about 0.05 mm (I think) - any more and you can get judder. When the rear brakes were done, the axle to caliper joint needs cleaning up to remove the corrosion and something like copper grease applied to help prevent it. You could also try turning the steering lock to lock 6 times to see if there is any air in the steering hydraulics.
There is a ball joint at the bottom of the front struts which can wear but if it did not judder before the new parts then these may not be the cause.

Something else that might possibly cause vibration is wear in the driveshaft bearing at the driver's side of the gearbox, however, I am not sure about this.
Was there unusual wear on any of the tyres before they were replaced ? If you lightly touch the brakes on the motorway is there any change to the judder ?
