2012 R60 Base CV Axle Confusion!

Greetings!,

I recently ordered a couple of aftermarket axles for my 2012 R60 Base with Manual Transmission and it turns out that the passenger (right side) replacement axle doesn't fit.
The replacement that I ordered was a APWI BM8343 but the distance from the center support bearing to the inside end of the shaft (the end going into the transaxle housing) is too long. It is almost an inch longer than the OEM part.

I've searched and searched trying to find the correct part numbers and to confirm the length of the shaft from the center support bearing to the tip of the inside shaft but have not been able to confirm a replacement.

Is there anyone out there that has successfully replaced the axles on a R60 base model with the manual transmission and could let me know what parts they used?

I've got the car torn apart but fear that I might have to put the bad axle back in so that I can at least get back and forth to work.

Thanks In Advance!

Greetings,
Is there anyone who has replaced either of the front axles on the R60 Countryman (non-S) FWD with Manual Transmission? I would really appreciate any help in identifiying what part numbers you used and where you got the replacements from.

Thank You.
