Question ECU Replacement - Punto 1.2 16v Auto

I have more problems with my 51 plate 1.2 16v Sporting Speedgear Automatic..............

Long story short, finally died and diagnostic guy suggests having ECU repaired (????) is that possible?

Made enquiries with dealer - surprise, surprise - they say I need 'virgin one'!!

Have already had new (re con) ECU in 2007, later, coil, plugs, battery even.......also head gasket in January. Its had diagnostic x 3 every time it starts running rough again and finally this - the ECU thing again.

Anyone......... give me advice or am i destined to get rid as non runner?
