Have a look at RealOEM.com BMW E38 740iL Sensors
I am pretty sure that they are mounted on the front face of the engine below the battery connector cover.

It appears to, but only gives part numbers for one, not exactly sure that that means. Let us know how you go. Are youhaving any performance issues with the car, or just the error code?

Well the site is sponsored by Volvo Parts, BMW Parts, European Car Parts | FCPGroton.com and they do offer a lifetime warranty on some parts.
Another on line company that I have used is Pelican Parts.com - Parts, Accessories and Technical Information for all BMWs.
Good luck

I came across this Camshaft Position Sensors | BMW 740iL | Magnum. Magnum has a number of Do it yourself write ups for the E38 740, so have a look at it.
