I've had them on other platforms. Negligible gains in terms of reducing mass in the driveline but there's an inherent safety increase should you experience a failure since it'll turn into a broom....

Long time ago a shop didn't tighten well one of the bolt and the bolt ended up making the driveshaft hole bigger.
Right now it's safely tighten but I will need to replace soon.

There's going to be a group buy for one on m3forum soon but is for the e46 m3. I think there might be an option that they will make it for other chassis' too. The thread is currently in the e46 m3 section.

Link? Company name?
I'm very picky with who's making it due to alignment issues I've seen before with cf driveshaft

Has anyone followed up on the groupbuy from m3forum? I'm definitely interested in getting a set if it fits the Z4M.

It doesn't fit. I checked before and they are different.

Yep, verified. I'm contacting the guy in charge to see if they can make the driveshaft for us at the group buy price... let's hope we hear some good news.

So he replied... he's willing to make it, but doesn't have a sample on hand to take measurements with.

Anyone has an old driveshaft lying around?
