I've been trying to find a center support bearing for my 2008 S5 but can't find one they have them for A5 they say that the A5 one won't fit the S5 it's got me confused because when I look for the whole driveshaft they say the one will fit both

Can you share the link to the item? My understanding is that a bearing is a bearing. You just have to make sure the physical dimensions of the bearing and the mounting bracket is the right size.

Last time I checked, they don't make any center support bearing for B8 platforms. You have to buy the whole shaft. I did see some for sale in Europe, but the instructions were sketchy... something about using a grinder to cut open some metal part so I stopped there. I've also found a website that used to sell it but stopped because people kept screwing up the balance and damaging other parts during installation.
