IMO its easier to just replace the whole axle. I found A1 Carodone remans for around 100 dollars a side with boot kits costing about 20. Its possible damage is already done to the axle from not having grease in it if you didn't find it quick enough. For an extra 80 dollars you get to have a new axle and save time on the install and not get all dirty replacing the boot and greasing it only to have it leak and do the job again. Just how I looked at it and replaced both axles. Also get the seals on the dif from bmw if you change your cv axles.
