Good price for a CDI box for 1985 930 (Euro)?

Hi guys,

I have heard so many people talking about spare CDI box being a good idea. What's a good price for one?

I found this place on the net:
Specialized ECU Repair - European Car Engine Computer Repair

They sell refurb (completely regutted) with original housing for $500 (less $100 for trade-in).
They also offer 5 year warranty. Does anyone have any experience with these guys?

I am NO mechanic, but I do know that these CDIs can be pricey.

Also, if the box does need swapping out, is it an easy job (unscrew, unplug) and then
just plug the new one in?

I also just want to confirm that this is the right part for 1985 930:
0 227 300 004

This is a 6 pin unit. For some reason, my mechanic thinks the 930 uses 8 pin.
Again, he's a good guy so I don't want to correct him unless I am absolutely sure.

My 930 is totally stock.
