Would it not be better to send my DME off to have it repaired? I have found a couple of places that say they can fix/rebuild them without the security VIN problems I have read about.
If the DME is original to the car, why should there be a security problem after the repair? The DME is married with the EWS module so if the original DME is repaired it should still be married to the EWS module.

I can see a security problem if you sent them a non-original DME to have it repaired and install in your car.
