Is the propshaft a shared item across E39s?

I have the dreaded click, click, click and a thorough search of the ńet suggests that itś the CV joint at the end of the propshaft.

So I need to get a replacement.

I have looked on Ebay and they all look the same (despite differing part numbers) and RealOEM.com shows different part numbers for the various models.

But will any propshaft from any E39 fit?

I appreciate that the manuals / automatics may differ of course.

Any help appreciated.

TIA.

This video (not mine) shows exactly what my car (a 2000 523 auto) is doing.
