I will get another unit next week, it comes from an e90 and was sold to me by a member of this forum. Will see what happens.

Regarding the AC failure, it was empty of freon. They filled it and also pour some Ultra Violet liquid in the system to verify where the leak is in the case it lose freon again soon.
You can code the new VIN with WINkfp. I bought myself a FRM3 with different VIN , and coded it , without changing the VIN , but if you look on realoem, when you want to buy a new TCU , it says to specify your VIN when you buy it
