  1. Can't say it would be OEM with how much it cost. It wasn't cheap but I know OEM shaft alone around around £300. It might have been GKN. Then again even if it was cheap, surely it would last more than a day. Unless they didn't fit it correctly or the length was wrong
  2. Car is low. By its been low for the year I’ve had it and it’s never been an issue. The garage just called and said the shaft they just replaced has gone again. It’s either a defective part or somethhng else is causing it to fail. GB mount and dog bone mount is ok. No play that could cause excessive movement
  3. They’re is no noise from what I can tell. This time it feels like it’s the drivers side. Vibration is through the whole car, and I can feel it though the pedals when driving. Haven’t tested it when cornerinh but it is worse when accelerating. I’m not sure it that because of the speed increase or id the problem is due to accelerating
  4. Car; mk4 GTI. 3 months ago I replaced my o/s driveshaft and both CV joints due to excessive vibration through the car. Problem solved. Yesturday, after the problem returned, the n/s shaft was also replaced. Problem seemed to have gone until driving home today. Vibration is back and it feels like I’m driving on a cobbled road. Wheels were here not long balenced, trying the find the initial fault a few months ago. What could I ask the garage to check tomorrow? - engine mounts. - dog bone mount - wheel bearings This definitely feels like a drive train issue I really hope it’s not the GB or Diff as I’m broke and losing my patience with this constant issue

    Big bumper is the way forward. They suit the line of the car much nicer I think.
