    Hi,

    Anyone know or recommend an uprated propshaft donut? Iv replaced mine about 12 months ago with a genuine bmw part and it’s gone again.

    thanks

    Do not buy the supposed uprated ones which are made of poly. They are crap and you will have no end of vibration through the drive train.

    The OEM should last for over 100k. Who installed the one you put in 12 months ago? Sounds like it hasnt been installed correctly ie not torqued correctly.

    Thanks man that’s good to know. A reputable bmw specialist near me who races m3’s. It’s not driven on the road solely a track car and it’s done I’d say roughly 20 track days.
