Thanks for the Support and Happy New Year's to Everyone.
I've been following the thread trying to decide if I want in. I look forward to your install.

Congrats on the marriage/honeymoon.

Interested!
I wonder if they can ship directly to Europe, instead of going through the USA first though?

Just want to make sure, but it looks like this carbon DS is a straight-through from giubo to differential and does not use a center support bearing, correct?

Parts wise, looks like a new giubo can be replaced and new guibo nuts as I read that the nuts are one time use.

What kind of grease is used at the differential end?

Yes, this is a one piece driveshaft from guibo to differential and doesn't use a CSB. Yes, they are one time use and best to replace once installed the new shaft. CV grease?

I just got back to the states and my car is wrapping up a few items. I am getting a custom DS loop for the 1 piece shaft for racing purposes.

I know the loop is required by NHRA for traps above 135 and ET below 11.5. The shaft would still be spinning if it broke and fell onto the loop, which would then burn through and disintegrate and splinter the CF. Also make sure the shaft has whatever clearance it needs to the car body when launching because any rubbing there will also destroy a CF shaft. At least with the E36, clearance is tight in the rear but stiff bushings and rear body reinforcements will limit flex. I assume the E46 has more clearance. I have rub marks on stock and chromoly E36 shafts from drag racing and am hesitant to go CF on my turbo E36M3 though I like the CF shaft in my NA E90M3.

Due to my 3.5 exhaust and heat-shield, we was unable to fabricate one. I am not to worried about the shaft as it is carbon fiber and will burn and disintegrate once it hit my exhaust. OP has been updated with the link to review and will be more detail as time progresses...
