Yes and no.
Some of the EBC pads do have the slot for the wear sensor, but they don't sell the sensor wire itself. No one does, except BMW, and then only with a new set of pads. I tried finding a replacement sensor wire, even going to EBC's UK factory, but it's just not available.
I did swap the sensors from my old pads to my new EBC pads a couple of times, but after that I gave up and just disabled the sensor by shorting the wire up at the first plug. See this thread
for details and pics. Never had a problem after that.
Here are the EBC pads that you'll need:
Rear Pads FA438HH
Front Left Pads FA335HH
Front Right Pads FA441HH
Note that the only difference between the FA441HH
front right pads and the FA335HH
front left pads is that the FA441HH
pads have a cutout to fit the sensor wire. So if you don't care about the brake pad warning light, those two part numbers are interchangeable. I imagine there's a non-sensor-cutout version of the FA438HH
rear pads as well, but I never bothered to chase it down.
A Google search on those part numbers will get you a full set of quality EBC pads with shipping for less than the cost of one set of BMW pads.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
