As an update, my failing bearing started to growl so loud that I got nervous about a long drive coming up and didn't want to wait for a new bearing to be shipped. So I bought a "Timken" bearing from Autozone for $47.

Well it turns out that Timken outsources their BMW bearings. I was pleasantly surprised to find a shiny new OEM F A G bearing in the Timken box! And for only $47 - a fraction of what other places charge.

Other people have had the same experience too:
