Brake pads and wear sensors

Can anyone help me identify the correct brake pads and wear sensors for VIN WDB1714732F181404 Its a 2008 SLK AMG 55 UK spec. Their seems to be 2 different types available here in the UK. Can someone also confirm that if the wear sensor is triggered then it requires replacement.

TIA

Wear sensor triggered, then yes, it needs replacing
if just changing pads because...and no alert...then no

But they're cheap as chips anyway and my London indie replaced them along with the floating disks and 6 pot pads. Costwise like a tiny anchovy on a planet sized pizza!
