Hopefully a quick one.

I'm looking for a new ignition control module and it should be one of these

I get that. But what is the actual difference between these modules for a 500 and the ones for a 420?

I can tell you for starters its price but I would have thought they control the spark identically.

Different fuel maps I would think. They are expensive and can fail if for example the heat compound has dried out.

I got lucky and just did buy two spare ones for my S600 for a total of 130 Euros - and they work. They also can be repaired, but if you want a new one then MB is the only choice - if they have it available
