My Ride: '01 330xi - '09 IS-F
I replaced my front/pass axle about 1-1/2 tears ago. I got the replacement from FCP Groton. I know it's made in China. It worked well until about 2 months ago. The wear is not on the CV joint but in the parts that slide horizontally.

Had I done more research, I would have bought the axle from RockAuto that uses A1CarDone. I was a noob then, and now I will pay the price.
