brake pads

I own a 99 Z3 2.5L. I need to replace the front brake pads. Do I have to buy new sensors or do they usually come with the new brake pads.
LETS HERE FROM Z3 OWNERS.

Sounds like you're going to get a consistent answer here. BUY OEM ONLY. Cheaper is just that, cheap. If you like how your car stops, buy the good stuff it came with. If stopping isn't that important, go cheap. Sensors SHOULD come with OEM but check with the parts supplier you buy them from first to make sure.
