Just curious if anyone makes them currently.

Google gave me an e90post page from 2013, and ECS tuning listings for YCW carbon fiber driveshaft which shows "back ordered". DSS doesn't have anything for non-M except axles.

I'm pretty sure DSS does make them, but I don't think they are advertised.

Stock driveshaft is listed as 10.5kg on realoem but not sure how accurate that is.

I'm not as concerned about the weight, but about strength. I've already twisted my driveshaft twice in ways that it wasn't designed to (stupid diff bolts like to break on my car for some reason). Honestly surprised it hasn't broken yet.

Sometimes it makes funny noises and I'm crossing my fingers it doesn't blow up the next time I do a pull at 30+ psi LOL
