Guest Posted April 18, 2010 Share Posted April 18, 2010 Hi all, well the goods news is that on Ebay I have found an ECU for the D4 and the current highest bid is Â£5.19 (mine!!). With only 2 days left at auction I am starting to ask the question that I stand a good chance of winning this, but is it too good to be true (as the best UK price of over Â£300 and over Â£500 from Panks, fitted (or should I say, fitted up!) Now...heres the thing, I am happy to part with Â£20 on the basis that it may be faulty (its not being sold as "tested in working order").. or it may not be. 50/50 chance that I could get an absolute bargain or loose Â£20, HOWEVER, on closer inspection the part number on the ebay picture does not exactly match that on other UK suppliers websites. instead of 225101003005 it is 225101001005. My first thought was that the e bayer may have incorrectly stated as 12v D4 ECU and it could be a D2 or 24v version. Having checked all of those part nrs, none stack up with this item code. So...being monsieur closeau, having googled the part number, I find that the part number does exist, furthermore it is a 12 v D4 ECU but only appears in Russian/eastern European dealer websites that supply D4's for trucks (it would seem). The schematic diagrams are identical to those in the UK/USA etc and my Russian is fluent enough to identify that it is the same generic part, but before I gamble with my Â£20 potential bargain, is there any reason why a D4 unit fitted to a truck in Moscow is any different to a D4 fitted to a Sealine in southampton? There doesnt appear to be any difference in the product supplied to trucks or boats. Any Eber guru's out there? adam... : : : Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
