I am going to buy a rear brake pad sensor for my 2005 530I. I was wondering which brand is better and if I buy the PEX or BOWA, do they work like the original one? The PEX and BOWA are much cheaper that Genuine. What do you prefer?
I would go with the BMW sensor. My dealer charges $15 as well. As far as i know the only design change is that there is more plastic on the sensors for the newer vehicles. It's still the same electronically speaking.
