Welcome to Bimmerwerkz.
The brake job in a 328i is pretty straight forward but you will need a couple tools. Make sure you have a short 6mm allen bit for the rear calipers. The rear shocks are kinda in the way so you need a really short bit, or an allen wrench for the caliper guide pins. For the rotors you need a 7mm allen bit for the set scew. Be careful as they can strip easily (done it!). Replacements are available for pretty cheap though.
As for pads, I run ATE pads. ATE was the OEM brake manufacturer for my 328i calipers. ATE rotors are just as good. Dont get drilled or slotted rotors. Especially since this is your girlfriends car. ATE blanks are fine. Drilled/slotted rotors are for track use and will just eat your pads. Your girlfriend will hate them.
Their are two pad sensors. One on the drivers front wheel, and one on the passengers side real wheel. They run about $12 each. You dont need to replace them unless they have been tripped, but I always do anyway.
