Yep, all of that refreshed and then some. Driveshaft was bought as refurbished tho. Not sure if installed incorrectly but my car clunks like a lot of m3’s I’ve driven (just much, much smoother). I can easily drive clunk free without even trying now and occasionally get it only on slow parking lot drives (before I can’t replicate a clunk even if I tried lol). So I assume install was all good.

My car initially and few other m3’s I’ve driven didn’t clunk tho, so I really don’t know which is “normal” or not. Either way I’m done spending $ on refreshing this damn car, just going to enjoy it now or buy “fun” mods.
