The BMW standard drive shaft with u-joints if Bruno can install grease fittings may well be best.
How long they will last seems to be the unknown, we just do not like not knowing when it will go out.
Any other forums with a bunch of threads about broken chains? It was crappy chains sourced by BMW. BMW can screw up a chain.
