Consider your local scrappy, although the car is "too new" to end up there you do get the odd few that are written off for something or other. I cant remember if the ECU is specific to the engine, or if its a general ECU, even then I think if you were to get one second hand, maybe Ford could re-program it for less?

just found one but i think guy is taking the biscut a bit 240 pound not far of what ford are charging for a new one but cause i havent got my old unit ford want an extra 75 pound i dont no seems a lot of hassle for such a small part lol

hmmm, I dont know why they want the extra 75 but I would get in writing the reason why.

as for the cost, you may as well buy it from Ford, for a brand new and guaranteed part!

The problem is its a small part, but its the entire brain of the computer, and brain surgery is a very expensive procedure!!

unfortunately that might be the cheapest you get!
