Another option for a driveshaft could be to order a carbon fibre one from DSS. Not sure how much it costs though.
Speaking of the driveshaft, have you got the measurements for your driveshaft when you installed your M3 rear driveline? The most important measurement overall will be the centre bearing -> diff flange.

There doesn't seem to much info out there on this. I calculated the nominal dimensions of the driveshaft to be 1325mm but one of the other guys have said its 1283mm for total length. I will obviously measure it on my car but would be useful to have some other people's measurements so I have some confidence in my findings.
