What frustrates me is that it can happen even buying something BRAND new! Even if it was new, in the box, from BMW dealer, there is a slight chance that it CAN be defective (no product is ever 100% perfect, even with the best quality controls). And there is nothing much more the dealer would have done, other then refund (unlikely) or exchange...Its not like they will compensate you for your one houre drive! In fact, you might have to wait several weeks for a new part to come in, as 20 year old ECU's are not a hot selling item thats kept in stock.
