328xi front brake job

I am going to be doing brakes on my 2007 BMW 328xi soon and i was wondering if i will need any special tools to do the job, or need to know anything special to do the job. i have done a lot of brake jobs before, but never on a BMW. What tools will i need/ what if anything is different from a standard front brake job-I'm changing pads,wear sensers, and rotors. Thanks for the help in advanced!

No special tools are necessary than any other brake job. You'll need Allen Key sockets for some of the bolts.
