If they have different part numbers,then you have to suspect that they are different in some way(maybe internally?).

I would doubly make sure that the pulleys,electrical connections and pipe fixings are identical and go from there.Your probably better off getting the advice of a dedicated air con specialist,as they may know if the units are inter-changable,and would be able to advise you on how much it would cost to fit it and re-gas the system.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
