Hi Guys.

I have been shopping around for a glow plug controller unit. Unfortunately they've not been available at the local car parts shop and also unable to find it on ECP.

I have managed to purchase one from Amazon but something tells me it might not be the right one. The one I purchased is

Part No 12217801200
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0068M4ILG/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_-5YFBbN3CYP1M

The part looks exactly how it should but I am finding alternatives such as

Part No 12217798000
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079GVYV6K/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_mhZFBbYH91HTX

I am hoping the first one will fit fine as it was half the price of the second one. Can anyone shed some light on this for me.

My car is BMW 320D 2008 N47. If someone who knows can confirm if the part will fit or not will help.

Thank you

Is it worth checking in RealOEM against your chassis number?

I just bought an E90 330D (2008) and I'm looking for the same part also.

12217801200 (Beru GSE101) is for older M47N/N2 engine.

12217798000 (Beru GSE105) is for newer N47 engine, like yours.

Thanks for your response. It makes sense now. The GSE101 is definately not compatible with my newer N47 engine then?

Looks like I will have to return it and source the correct one. ?

12218591723 is the same part as 12217798000 just a revised part number. Exactly the same part can be sourced as after market part much cheaper. Just search for example from ebay with Beru GSE105.
