Subject: Re: 733i Driveline
Thanks to everybody who replied to my request for sources for rebuilt
driveshafts. Virtually everybody recommended the same one - Driveline
Services of Oregon, in Portland Oregon.
Just as an FYI, I called them and they sell a rebuilt unit for $375. It
has replacable U-Joints and a 5 year 50,000 mile warranty. This definitely
sounds like the way to go if you are keeping your car for awhile. However,
I also found that Mesa Performance has a rebuilt shaft for $295. It
doesn't have replacable U-Joints and only has a 1 year warranty. This is a
tough choice for me since I really only plan on keeping the car for another
year or so. I'm sure that the shaft with the replacable U-Joints is the
best long term solution, but it seems kind of hard to justify the extra $80
for my use.
Anyway, thanks again for all of the responses.
