I am just about to buy the bits I need to do the rear brake pads and discs.

The manual says I must replace the brake pad sensors, is that correct? Do they need to be replaced every time? Also I wanted the fitting kit but there are 2 choices available, does anyone know what I need? Its a 2010 BMW 320D ED

Choices are :

Brake System : ATE-Without Reinforced Brakes

or

Brake System : Teves-With Reinforced Brakes

Reason I am asking is because the brake pads show as Brake System : Teves but they aren't reinforced.

I have the same car as you and when I very carefully took my sensor off, the clip broke. I had to put the wheel on in order to drive to the Auto part shop for a $26 part and then take the wheel off again to fit it. As I was replacing the wheel for the last time, I made a mental note to myself that I would always replace the sensors.

Id buy the sensor, you can always return it if not needed.
