DME Relay

Bought mine from Type911 in 2008 ( still had receipt) and had to install it today due to a 'one off' engine cut out when i traversed a pot hole, it restarted OK but confidence gone, so had to find fault - see below. The new unit had a 911.... part no on it to and DME relay printed on it. The one I took out was the original, with a 1986 date code. I took it apart and it had two dry joints and a couple of cracked solder joints on the big power tags. So cleaned it up with flux and re soldered, now have nice shiny finish soldered joints. tested it and is OK, so the old one will be my carry a spare at all time on. BTW I took the new one apart to check quality,- all soldered joints were well made.

Where's the best place to buy one of these from, please? I've had a new/unused one for years but I can't tell it apart from an second-hand one that I've also got?
There is a wide price-range which makes me wonder if there are some lower quality ones out there but equally the £60 plus from Porsche is way more than my old OE one which was £19 from memory.
