Wait let me get this straight... you think something to do with your driveline broke?

I don't know whether you have a 320i or si, but take a look here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/partgrp.d...id=48481&hg=33

Sounds familiar.

It should be covered under warranty. The dealer I went to replaced the whole drive shaft assembly rather than just a coupling.

I don't think this is a common issue. Does is smell like diff fluid?

daam dealer said it was the diff which broke...the coupling was all fine n so was the prop. the dealer ALSO SAID 2-3 weeks as they dont have any diffs for my model in stock and the parts are on back order..

Your original post makes me think you are a young and irresponsible driver.
