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).
