545i rear brake pad change

New to E60, and I am handy.
Havent removed my rear wheels yet, however I noticed my rear brake pads need to be changed as I have a warning light on the car and my front brakes where changed when I bought the car 1.5 years ago and only drove 30,000kms.

Any special tools required? Do I need to replace the sensor?
Any brake pads suggestions? OEM or?
I have stock BMW OEM brakes on the car.
Any info would be greatly appreciated
I searched the site but found no easy to find info on rear brakes for th e60 545i

About tools, I dunno, but you should be prepared to replace the sensors. I would use OEM parts; that's just me, maybe.
