    Hello all,

    I have been driving now for a year with the dreaded ~65mph vibration. It's getting worse, and I've been looking in many forums etc, everybody seems to point out to a driveshaft issue. My car is at 116K right now (55 reg), so looks a bit early.

    I'm thinking into booking the local dealer to confirm it is a problem with the shafts, but would like a bit of advice on the best replacement option, apart from genuine ones, which cost more than I'm willing to pay.

    I have seen the following options for my CL7:
    Q-Drive (Euro Car Parts)
    Insane shafts (H-Tune)
    Japanparts (MickGarage.com)
    GuV by J&R

    Any advice? While I'm not willing to stump a couple of grands, I would like to put something decent.

    Many thanks,

    Jose

    Shaftec seem to come pretty highly recommended.
    I have heard that Insane are decent as well

    If it is the shafts, then if the garage can tell which joint it is, just change the joint.

    I think thats because they remanufacture rather than retail shafts.
