If I had an N55 135i then that is the way to go. Unfortunately the gearbox in my car is different to a 1M.

I guess it might be possible to use the rear section of the 1M propshaft and the slipjoint is probably compatible with my front section (so no cutting or welding needed), but it would still need rebalancing. 1Ms are super rare so you'd only be able to get them new from the dealership (get your lube ready when they quote you)
