Your factory BMW drive shaft have non-serviceable joints. If you need a drive shaft you will need a rebuilt unit and there are several companies that do this. I checked the price for my 86 535 (manual) and it is around $380 with a lifetime warranty plus a $200 core charge.

The dealer won't help you. You need a machine shop that can do drive shaft work. You see, the factory units are centered and then a machine pushes into the metal raising portions of it against the union. Standard replaceable ones need a groove so the c-clip can hold them in place. The machine shop needs to remove the factory ones, machine the parts with a new groove and then install the unions. The good thing about this is that from this point one that they can be changed very easily and greased. The bad one is that it costs more money. Go here and read.
