Hello GG.

I'm not 100% sure that the shafts will be interchangeable...the trouble is that you won't know until you remove the old one and compare the two.

Check the ABS rings have the same number of teeth,and go from there.If theres a different number,then they're obviously different.Other things to look at are the total length of the shaft and the number of teeth on either end of it.

It might be possible to change just the outer CV joint,but again I'm not 100% sure.

Good luck and hope all goes well.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
