Exclamation Front Drive AXLE/CV recommendation

Hi all,

after having my 2nd re-manufactured passenger side drive axle from BMW installed by them crap out on me again, I'm looking for alternatives since I am out of warranty. Anyone have experience with the aftermarket brands, there is no way I'm shelling out $400+ for a re-manufactured axle from BMW again.

Its interesting that in both cases, the boot itself was never torn, rather the internal clamp/seal that the boot clamp binds over wore off, thus slinging grease everywhere. both lasted approximiately less than 25k miles.
