    How about a part number for the replacement u joint and the retaining clip? I always wondered about this. Think it would work on an e30 M3?

    see ETK what is available from BMW, and the spezialized driveline shops like
    https://www.drivetrain.com/parts_catalog/drivetrain/
    http://www.shaftpro.com/
    http://www.machineservice.com/driveline-parts.htm
    found on google, no affiliation.

    But remember, often a rebalancing is required, so for sure it is easier to send it to a repair shop with the proper equipment to do so.
