I got one for my 89 200Q from Stammler Porsche-Audi for ~ $110, don't
know if the 20V cars use a different unit though.  You may get some BS
about "if you replace anything on the driveshaft it will be out of
balance" this was not my experience (YMMV). :-)

You will need the gaskets for both ends of the driveshaft (dealer ~$2)
and new bolts (Metric parts place or dealer).

You will most likely need a press to get the CV off the shaft...
