06 sensor question/confusion, which ones? at bmw parts?

I have a 2006 3 series sports sedan. I'm planning to get new REAR brake pads and sensors soon, When I tried to look for brake sensors in getbmwparts.com theres a little confusion. Which is the right one?

When I searched for rear pads, it is pretty clear 2006 is differnt from 2007 models,

but When i search using year 2006 this is what I get:
Sensor, 325 and 330i, ci, xi
01-06 $21.80 $17.44

If I did a quick search using 2007 3 series for a test to see if there's any difference, this is what i get
Sensor, pad wear sensor, 3 series, rear
06-10 $27.18 $21.74

So which is the right sensor for my 2006 330i sports sedan, built in jan/feb 06 and delivered april 06?


thanks

you have to make sure you are searching for the '06 e90 4-Door sedan. the '06 coupes were still the e46 chassis, that's what the "ci" is. the '07 328i uses the same parts though, so you'll be okay using the 07 parts.

i'm still confused. The info on getbmwparts.com is wrong? I have a 06 sedan 330i and i need to get the 07 brake parts? I don't want to get the wrong items.

DOES anyknow know the PART # for the REAR brake pads and sensors for the 2006 330i sports sedan?

thanks

Go to www.realoem.com and enter in your vin. You'll get the proper part numbers there.

No, sorry - I should have clarified (didn't notice you had a 330i). the 06 325i and the 07 328i use the same parts. You need the 06 330i SEDAN parts only. they are different than the 325i/328i and also different than the E46 coupes.
