I have an Xi at 197k...it needs axles, slight vibration at highway speeds but due to the cost of axles, I'll deal with a little vibration....Just rebuilt inner and outer of the front axles. Completely cleaned them out and regreased them, has helped a little with the vibration.

Anyone have any experiences with aftermarket front axles?? I have gone this route on other fwd cars, but not with BMWs.
I have oem axles with 15k miles on em. toss an offer
