Replacing brake sensor

I'm probably WAAY overthinking this... Just replaced the rotors and pads on my '10 128. They were in REALLY bad shape. The sensors were worn down, but I didnt realize how bad till I saw what a new one looked like. I have to replace them. Question is.. Do I spring for the OEM sensors, or just got get the Wearevers that the local Advance Auto has? Another brand suggestion?
Was gonna get them from either ECS, or Amazon.. or local store. Input is appreciated.

Impatient much? Hadn't even been 16 hours since your original post when you re-posted, but I'll bite.

"Don't cheap out, just buy genuine. All the other stuff is s**t."

"Why bother with genuine on a wear-part. Just buy good quality aftermarket."

"Just buy whatever. It's all the same."

These are the responses you'll get, and in the end you'll still have to decide for yourself.

Cheap stuff vs. genuine is what, $10 different? Is the cheap stuff likely to be such horrible crap that it'll mess your car up? In this case, not likely. Is 10 bucks really that much for peace of mind? Not really.

I think the real question is how many of us have the sensors zip tied up somewhere in our suspension and no where near the pads?

The pads I am running don't even have the cut out for the sensors (Carbotech AX6). But they are not really a street pad.

Hi,
How do I tell if my new pads have the cut outs for the sensors?

there will be a U shape slot cut in the middle of one of the inner pads for the front and the rear (FL & RR). take a look at your oe pads when you pull them out. it is pretty obvious.
