I bought my copies within the last 2 weeks, and both were 96kbps.

The 5th Element MP3 needed an update... its very "tinny" sounding in parts.

Cool thanks! I am re-doing my 5th Element so I may as well download the better version.

I noticed that as well. 

Do you have to pay again to download the fresh version?

It still has a "tinny" quality to it at 96 unlike the newer ones. They have gotten better with the recording since the beta days.

Yes you do. Although as I said above the sound is still a little off of the current trax are like. I was curious if the higher bitrate helped with sync issues since most of the later ones can be sync'd without a hitch. I have to do very little editing these days.  There is one section of Fifth Element though that is way off even though the sync lines are fine, that I and Gammer think is an actual error in the Trax. When Zorg is setting the bomb on the hotel door mikes riffs are way off, for the next 3 or 4 jokes. I had to put in a full second or two to get it to sync up to the action and then remove the same amount after the lines.

There is for sure.

The riffs are off by 1 second from the point where Aknot walks in and says "Show Time" to the point where (but not including) Corbin Dalas asks "where are the stones" and Mike says somthing like "Stones tickets are available through ticket master".

You really notice it when Mike Riffs "She just sounded like Mr. Burs there...YES" and when he says "Nice Keyster"

I just added 1 second of silence at the first spot I pointed out and then removed a second of silence before the second spot I pointed out. Everything seems to be timed correctly now.
