That's a pretty handy idea. I'll give that a shot.

From what I hear, you can!
Like I said,

No. Get one with a 123 number...

Hahaha... OK. Too late. Oh well, I can always sell it like I bought it.

That was my concern about buying one from eBay. Most of them are pulled from wrecked cars and only tested as far as pushing the buttons and seeing if it falls apart. This one was a rebuilt one that had been purchased from those rebuilding guys for $185.

I'm not gonna fry anything if I try it, am I?

I guess I'd rather not hose some future owner's ability to troubleshoot any potential problems. I'll wait for a w123 one to come up.

You may want to contact GDL (those rebuilding guys for $185) and see if you can get some kind of a deal by trading the W126 unit for a W123 unit. When I bought mine (W123), they were very accommodating, they ended up charging me about half the core charge even though my old unit was completely toasted. From what they told me, they test every unit they get to determine if it needs rebuilding. If you really have a freshly rebuilt W126 unit they may cut you a deal. It can't hurt to ask.
