Right Rear Half Shaft HELP!!

What am I missing here? BMW part number BMW (33-20-7-571-054) is $554 plus a $50 core charge from BMW Parts Direct. It is a "Remanufactured Output Shaft Right". Turner BMW sells GSP half-shafts for $73! My Indie shop says they will only use BMW half-shafts because all the rest are "junk"! And they are $700 plus $145 install! OUCH! And the only thing wrong with it is the ABS ring nothing else! Oh yeah, I will be doing this myself! My Z is not a daily driver and never sees bad weather or track days! In Egland, they sell the ABS ring but not in the States, for about $85 with shipping.

Doesn't sound like you are missing anything, BMW gouges for every part.
There's a couple on ebay, https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...1-054&_sacat=0

New Information!!

In my quest to know more about my Z4si, I came across:2 Set Rear ABS Ring and Drive Shaft Hub Nut for B-MW 1 3 5 Z4 Series E34 E36 E46 E81 E82 E85 E86 E87 E88 E90 E91 E92 F30 F31
12.49
From all places, Amazon UK! Under $30 bucks with shipping and what the heck, both sides! More than one YouTube video shows replacing just the ring! If it works, I will take pictures and post them. If not, well, I tried.
