I'd wait before getting too involved with ECU 's then to be honest.The ECU is often blamed for many faults,but in reality (well,at least in my experience) it's only at fault a very small percentage of the time.

If it is the ECU ,then as long as the part numbers are the same,then it will be OK for the car,but depending in which type of immobiliser you have will determine what you need to do to get it to accept the key or blip.

If you post up what the fault appears to be then we may be able to offer more help on it,and even if it is the ECU then they are repairable for reasonable money and this could be the way to go,especially as it will be the original for the car and the immobiliser won't cause any problems.

As for changing all the injectors and the sensors,that is completely untrue.

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