Pre-LCI Gear selector/GWS replacement...coding required?

I have the opportunity to purchase an '08 pre-LCI 3.0 X5 with adaptive drive and sport button for the transmission (sport package equipped). One of the issues is that the gear shifter/selector lever (GWS) if physically broken internally...it won't spring back to position, and it will not select any gear. It just flops back and forth.

I currently own an '07 3.0 X5, that also has sport package and adaptive drive. Before I purchase the '08, I want to be able to actually get it into gear and verify that it will move under it's own power. Can I swap the gear selector assembly from my '07 into the '08 without having it recoded, just as a test to see if it will work? I have verified that both gear shifter assemblies use the same part number. I have read that some pre-LCI GWS modules do not need to be recoded, but would like to make sure beforehand.

The reason is that the vehicle is an hour and a half away, is sitting at the edge of a field in south MS heat...knowing beforehand that it might not work saves me time and energy. Regardless, after talking with someone else, they think it should work without any additional coding.
