I know this is probably a stupid question to some but is the DSC controller and ABS central unit or the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) the same thing.

I have a 2000 528iT with only 48k miles. When the BRAKE/ABS and DSC lights started to come on intermittently I took it to the a local BMW mechanic and was told the left front wheel speed sensor was bad and the DSC controller needed to be replaced. I did the wheel sensor at $160 but not the DCS at over $1000. I just picked up a 2008 535xiT through European Delivery and plan on selling this one, so don't want to put a lot in it. Through another thread in this forum I was alerted to the fact that the unit can be rebuilt.

I went on to the site and they walk you thru removing and shipping the part (very nice) for rebuild at around $310. But, I am a bit confused, are the DSC controller, the ABS central unit and the EBCM all one and the same?:rofl:

Thanks for you help.
