2006 brake pad/sensor questions, please help

I have a 2006 330i sports sedan. My rear brake pads are starting to wear down, I would say I still have 40% left. I would hear a very light SHORT squeak when I apply the brakes quickly, but If I apply it very slowly I don't hear it at all.

I have 3 questions:
1)does the maintaince indicator tell me when I need to replaced them?
2)If I do replace the rear ones, Do I have to replaced the sensors too?
**two BMW quoted me $120+/- for the rear pads and $40 for the sensors**
thats kind of high $$$?

3)Which is the best trustworthy website to get BMW parts at discounted prices?

thanks alot

Those sensors are crap. I had my replaced twice because they went bad. SA put my Key into the machine and the sensor read they my cars brakes were overdue by 10,000 miles. They also like to tend to get loose and start making noise, which is what I'm dealing with right now but my SA states he doesn't hear anything. Hopefully they will replace for the third time.

1) Yes, your sensor will trip or your count down will hit 0 then your sensor will trip in the next day or two
2)Yes, unless you want to reuse it IF the sensor hasnt been tripped yet
3) getbmwparts.com

Cant reuse sensors, it won't reset. Do a search.

Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
