We got them from Bimmerzone.com They were $112 at the time. They have gone 
up, must have caught on. Anyhow, if you replace both of them, along with 
adding the 4-wire O2 per Keith, you have plenty of cord to relocate the 
bracket. I don't have pics of this, but we moved the bracket up by the 
drivers side coil. It just unbolts from the block.

Here is the 5000 sensor, note the length of the cord.

Here is the V8 sensor for comparison.
