Right, where did you get yours from? got mine of eBay at 80 delivered, new 43mm bolts were 11 from BMW. should have been all good and i am now 99% it is one of the CV joints. discovered on removal of the old shaft (which is not completely removed yet) that there are two different types of output flange on the diff. An 86mm and a 94mm one. mine is fitted with the 86mm one and the replacement is a 94mm one so will have to get to diff output flanges at approx 65 each and another drive-shaft for the opposite side!


So a bit of a nightmare at the moment! car looking a bit sorry with its arse up in the air!
