My P6 halfshafts have more angle with the car at normal position than the P4
tailshaft ever did.

But note here that P6 halfshaft normally run at a fairly small angle. 
Yes, large angles happen during suspension travel, but those are mere 
transients and don't occur long enough for a driver to even feel the 
vibration from excessive angles.
