You're right Dave, the sensor's from the 5K series do just dandy, they 
are interchangeable, and they are relatively cheap.  I got mine from 
the good folks at AudiC0nnection (now GermanCarConnection).  Don't 
recall what I paid, but not much, probably under $50 each.

The cables are much longer, but coil 'em up and quiktie 'em and don't 
worry about 'em.  Also, I seem to recall that Tony Hoffman said that 
the extra length allowed him to relocate the plug block to the firewall 
(or something like that).
