Also you get the 2 yrs Warranty from VW for the work.That's unfortunately about the right price for a VW dealership to replace...
The cost is a lot more than I had first thought (compared to your 'normal' car)! GSF & Eurocarparts are quoting around £500 for an OEM driveshaft complete (VW would charge a bit more) plus the labour for fitting, which requires the wheel hub / suspension strut removed for access, this would add up to around the amount quoted I'm afraid.
If you want to save some money, you will find any garage would be able to tackle this fairly simple job, using the cheaper drive shaft, however you'll still have a bill between £400-£750, and may not give you the same peace of mind that a qualified VW dealer has done the work.
If it's a known fault, might be worth asking the dealer for some good will? (good luck!)...
