The 017 box is available from me if that solves the problem. Came in with a bunch of parts from Europe... so it is untested. Could send it conditionally, if desired. If it solves the problem we settle up. If it doesn't function properly, you can return it. I sold one to a friend in Ireland a while back, and that one fixed his early GTV6. So the 017 shown in the pix is my last one of those left in my stash.
On my 1986 GTV6, my mechanic had told me the little 'BMW' chip was what replaced the cast aluminum box on later GTV6s. As I'm a bit green on these things, I can't argue that either way. But the cast box has not been present on any of my later model GTV6s. Could check under the hood of the one in my yard... but it has a Verde 3.0 in it. So, that may not answer any 1982 GTV6 questions.
The grouping of the contact blades on all 3 look very different. So, in any case, might not be a quick plug-in.
