    What the difference is I don't know but doubt if there is any in practical terms.

    Version 'A' was dropped on 01/07/2007 and version 'D' was designated as the replacement.

    No doubt 'C' fitted in the middle somewhere !!

    C has a PR code that notes manual heater system, but 1 of them had a slightly different plastic frame for the hazard button that needed trimming, I'm sure D is the one you need, I always forget lol.

    You can get C and D but not A as that was superseded as stated in my previous post !

    You need 'D'

    I always say, unfortunately time = money no matter which way you cut it, so spending time modding a C is money, which would add up to more than the difference you may/may not get a D for :) so save the hassle & buy once.
