      Hello,
      i had a "hum" from the rear axle,this turned out to be play in the
      c.v.joints both inner and outer.
      I replaced the shafts on my uk m535i with 528i items "same as the ones on my
      m535i!"
      On the supject of "driveshafts to short".
      Have you got the correct final drive/L.S.D diff fitted?
      As the shafts from lesser powered models had longer shafts due to a smaller
      diff.
      Found this out when replacing my shafts!

      Hope this helps a little!

      Ben.
