DME replacement

If I need to replace the DME in my 08 328xi, can I simply replace the DME, CAS, and key from another 328xi? Will it work correctly? Can a simple misalignment between the DME and CAS cause a no start, no spark condition? Is there anyone in the southern NJ/Philly area that can code? Or repair a DME?

To make a used Dme working on your car, you need both cas and Dme from the other car, and also EGS if you have the automatic transmission. Naturally you need also keys coming from the other car.
Better for you buying a new Dme

Are you sure about EGS on E-series? On F-series it is definitely needed.
