WTB: Used brake pads and sensors

Buying used OEM brake pads and sensor for 2008 e93 335i cab. My brake pads and sensors r fairly new but it makes a lot of squeaking noise so i want to switch it out to oem brake pads and sensor. I'm not considering to buy new brake pads and sensors cuz I deciding to sell the car at the end of this summer.

Have you tried cleaning and greasing everything first? That usually helps.
Also, make sure to bed your brakes in. Google it.
Chances are you haven't been braking hard enough and your brakes have worn poorly. Try braking much harder when stopping or getting off the highway and avoid gently braking which causes the pads to drag, overheat, and wear poorly. You should almost be engaging the ABS.
Of course, make sure nobody is behind you before you slam the brakes.

Thanks for the tips. I have tried bed my brakes in and it's still the same.
For cleaning and greasing I would have to bring it to a shop and let them take care of it
