That is serious. What year is your bike? If it's candidate for driveshaft vent hole installation (Service Action 0033130000), I'd take those photos to the dealer and they may install new driveshaft free of charge.
Just make sure you clean everything well and apply grease on the splines front and rear and on the U-joint. Then the other grease to seal both rubber boots.

As being 2018 I think it's part of BMW's campain to fit the valve on driveshaft housing. I've heard that they test the driveshaft and replace it if it shows any slack. Bikes with more then 40.000 miles get new shaft without any tests performed. Show them the photos. Your shaft doesn't look good and it's because the water coudn't be drained from the housing.

Replaced failed driveshaft early June 2022 on 2016 R1200 GSA with just 30,000 miles. Cost over $1600! Contacted BMW and they said it was out of warranty so no reimbursement. Hopefully they will now reconsider.
