    Isn't the 'performance Haldex controller' cheaper than the oem item?

    Yep. When I bought mine in August '10, OEM was about £900, performance was £675 from APS.

    They used to be £500 before the pound:euro exchange rate went down the toilet.

    And yes, that one listed on eBay will fit, although I can't remember mine being blue when I got it!
