I was also quoted a crazy price when faced with the same problem of having to replace my front drive shaft on my X3. After the initial shock of having to spend right about 1300-1500 to have it fixed, I began searching the formus on X3 drive shafts. I came across a company that sells new and re manufactured drive shafts, and I was able to come away from it with a brand NEW heavy duty front drive shaft for a phenomenal price of $356.70 with free shipping and a one year unlimited mile warranty. When the part arrived at my mechanic we were both pretty shocked at the heavy duty quality and the fact that it also has REPLACABLE U JOINTS!!!!. My guy installed it with no problem, and glad to report Im back on the road with no issues so far, and im about 1K miles into the new part. Needless to say my mechanic is a pretty darn good customer of theirs now. The name of the company is links posted below... Hope this helps
