I really appreciate your help with this. I read through the Bentley procedure this evening and it looks like something I can tackle. My cousin is the head mechanic at a Ford dealership and I plan on using him as well as the well outfitted shop! With those tools in my corner this should go well. I was wondering if I should get the center bearing only or if I should get the new drive-shaft assy w/ center bearing. The drive-shaft is in good condition per the mechanic who checked out the car. I'm not looking for cheap fixes, but $400 saved in labor plus $400 saved in parts equals $800 I can put toward many other things for this car. Should I just buy the guibo and the center bearing and the necessary self-locking nuts and go to town or should I buy the new drive-shaft assy? 12-year old car w/ 72,000 miles.

Thanks again Don,
Scott '89 535i 5-spd
