I replaced the GIUBO "GUIBO" "Flex Disc" with one from URO parts (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0066S2ROM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) , while doing my clutch. It seemed to be good quality and similar to the BMW one.

I followed the info I found on installing it correctly (Arrows pointing toward flanges, nut instead of bolt-head goes on back of flange, torque to spec from the nut end). It was a pain getting the two part driveshaft to stretch back to its original distance from the rear diff to the trans output, but no other issues. Even the driveshaft center balance bearing lined back up with where it was when removed.

I did convert to a single mass flywheel (lighter), so there is a little bit of vibration from rotation balance/gear chatter, but other than that I have no clue what the problem could be.

The fabric bands inside the guibo are starting to be pulled out in one direction. I attached a pic with the failure circled in yellow.

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah, unfortunately the URO brand parts are really hit or miss. I've gotten a few things that have been fine, but others that have been not so fine....

Thanks for the input. There were several positive reviews that approved of the quality of this part, by them, at first glance at least, so I figured it would be okay. Unless anyone has had a similar problem with another maker's version, I'll have to decide on how to replace.

Did anyone notice any twisting of the GIUBO when reattaching to the trans output flange? Like I said it took some muscle to get the driveshaft to reach, and when I was torquing down the nuts to the GIUBO, it was stretching a little before the driveshaft stretched.

Never had such a problem getting my drive shaft "stretched" to easily mate up to the flex disc. Suggest you go back and free up the drive shaft slip joint so that it easily slides forward to the correct lenght. Any pulling on the flex disk from a "short" drive shaft will tear it up pretty quick - good quality or not.
