2005 E500 windshield replacement

Going to have to change my windshield. Can this be done without changing the rain/light sensor? Windshieldstogo.com will change it for $341.00, but some of the companies I spoke to said this will need to be replaced. Is this true? Honestly I don't care about the reain sensor because I don't like how it works anyways. I always leave it off, but I do like having auto lights come on. I'm assuming this is where the headlight auto sensor is located. Any help will be great. I'm at 100k on the car..so value isn't any concern to me. We actually tried to make a deal on a 2010 E350 this weekend at the OKC dealership, but the wife decided she wants to drive this car for another year until the new body style gets a little cheaper.

I'm needing brakes too... I'm going to by these rotors/pads off of Ebay. I know they're cheap, but I'm just trying to get by another year with this car. You guys see any reason why these wouldn't work on our car. It's a 2005 E500 sadan base model. There's a local garage that works on Mercedes here that will charge me $189.00 to install them.
