Dealer said I had to replace this?

Turned the car in to have a clicking sound looked at. Only had it while starting to move in first and reverse. I was thinking U-Joint, and I was right. Dealership said it was the U-Joint making the noise, but that I'd have to replace the entire driveshaft. I've found a U-Joint for $85, does anyone know whether I can replace just this part, or have heard anything like this before? Cause right now I'm calling BS. Before I buy the part, I just wanted to get some input. Thanks.

I don't know about BMWs, but a lot of modern driveshafts are sealed units and don't have replaceable U joints.

Dealer said U-Joint. I found the part online for $85. They said I would have to replace the whole driveshaft. And if what TRZ is saying is true about my car that would suck. Not familiary with the term guibo?

Sorry man, I figured they had explained the areas of wear. Here's a good description from Rogue Engineering's site:
