Thanks for the write up OP. I just replaced my rear right air spring last night after it started to sag a few weeks ago. I have a 2001 4.4 Sport model so I ordered Arnott part A-2503 which replaces BMW part # 37126750356. Total for the part was $113.51. I ordered on 7/20 and received the part on 7/23. I did the install by myself last night in about 60 minutes.

I had my left rear spring fail about 2 years ago and at the time was too busy to DIY so I ended up having a local independent shop replace the spring. Total then was $510 and included 3 hours of labor at $99/hr. After doing the second spring myself last night I feel like I was ripped off on the labor. No way this takes a mechanic close to three hours when I did it myself (for the first time) in about 60 minutes. I am glad I saved $400 this time around though.
