    Hey i have a question for you !
    Normally when i want some OEM specific part i go with the dealer and the price is normally good.
    But for this part if i compared with the internet is like 3x the price.

    Those from internet, 5Q0 907 530 AM continental is all made in china ?? is that normal or i need to go deeper ?
    The other from Lear is made in morrocco

    Also i talk with the dealer and no problem for the CP and FEC

    after that you HAVE TO go to the dealer to clear CP and have FeC codes restored.

    It makes no difference where you get it from, the process is the same for associating it with your car, I.e. A trip to the dealership! Buy it where it is cheaper, the Lear and conti doesn't matter.

    The manufacturer of the part does not affect its operation. The same software version will operate on either gateway. Personally if I was going to update my Gateway I'd recommend going for the latest 3Q0 version to futureproof additional retrofits. It becomes contagious...
