Default Left Rear CV Axle Suggestion

Hi S2KI,
Let me introduce myself by saying I am pretty sure I have the only S2000 in the country of Armenia*. Anyway, my question; I need a left rear CV axle. I found a used one a couple of months ago on Ebay for $90 something, and it too was worn on the wheel side.

I have seen what is called "New" CV axles that cost less than $100 on eBay and other places on the internet. Any experience with such "New" axles? I have had poor experience with rebuilt BMW axles (from China) back in the US from places like AutoZone, but what is called "New" for less than $100 seems too good to be true.

Any experience? Thanks

* I bought a used S2K from Dubai and almost done fixing it. Back in Boston after my son totaled his AP1, I dismantled it and was so impressed by its stiffness, I bought a beaten up one to fix up.

You should try and find a low mile OEM axle on eBay or something, habibi.

Or maybe there's some performance aftermarket company like Raxles that makes them for reasonable money?

A parts store axle is another option. I've heard people had decent luck with autozone or NAPA or whatever.

Well, I just ordered another used axle from Ebay, after the seller assured me they don't sell worn axles. The seller has good reviews, so let's see. I won't wait months before I open this latest order, so if it's worn not only will Ebay know but will post a harsh review. Ebay claims to guarantee the item that is advertised is what is being sold. I do have in an email from the seller stating they don't sell worn parts. I will write back to this form my experience ... this time.
