    could be radiator mounts, or in my case it turned out to be a faulty ball joint. only took it seriously when my wishbone bush fell off.

    A shaft CAN flex quite easily. The perfect example would be a torsion bar. In the case of a driveshaft though, I think the Vx guy might've actually meant one or both of the joints at either end. If you can narrow down if the noise is linked to wheel speed or engine speed you'll stand a better chance of tracing it. Also if it occurs only when moving forward or equally in reverse. Likewise only when in drive (in gear, foot off clutch) or does it stop if you floor the clutch? Always possible it might be a universal joint failing.
