Brake Pads, Rotors, Sensors Needed

I'm trying to find replacement brake pads, rotors, and sensors to replace these myself on my 2009 335i Not having much luck finding a single site that has everything in stock that I want. One local parts supplier said they can order but their prices are much higher than the ones I've found on-line. I've decided I'd like to get cross-drilled and slotted rotors and low-dust quiet pads. Also, I would prefer zinc plated rotors to prevent rust on hats and edges. Can anyone recommend a place in Houston I can purchase that has decent prices or a good site I can order from that will carry everything in-stock?

I also know I need the pad sensors and clips but I'm confused as to how many there are to replace, 1 per wheel or 1 per axel? Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

You can check, or for oem stuff there is or even call the dealers part counter. I was in luck that at my local dealer I could get what I needed for an oil change for slightly less than the online stores and avoided shipping and handling. Also check the dealers website for coupons if you go that route, I've seen 10% off parts before. Good luck,

Try Tischer. I'm pretty sure that they sell it as a kit.
