Then an almost brand new X5M part came out with just 3 km also in Germany and I bought that one too. Both in transit. Both about EUR 200 + EUR 60 each. With import tax about C$400 - C$450. I will update how it worked out.

Never thought I would be forced to use technology *ebay* ))) that badly. But C$2000 per 1 of 4 OEM output shaft!! Next time may consider that for wheel bearings as I paid C$550 for the left front OEM last year and ebay has aftermarket bearings starting from $49.
Update on my previous post above - just had my original rear left shaft replaced with the used one I received from Germany (ebay). As per above it came off a newer diesel model that they dont sell in North America, but it fits E70 X5M! Paid 3 hrs labour to replace C$360. Day 1 - sofar so good!
