Buy two new ones (They even have the BMW logo on the packing) and change them yourself. This is a snap if you have a tie rod puller.
When you remove the old one, measure them and make the new one the same lenght.
Then go for a tie in adjustment.
And check : www.bmwe34.net for the complete procedure.
