Brand new (1k miles) 123 bought and fitted last year after the original unit gave up the ghost after 15 years and well in excess of 100k miles of use. Got it booked in with my mate at lunchtime Wednesday.

It may be worth sending your old 123 back, for repair, got mine done some years back, only had to pay the shipping.

Post Re: My 2cv
I arrived back home in Shetland this morning. The 2CV is now safely tucked away back in my sister's garage until I head back down in September. It wasn't running at all well once the engine was up to temperature, which I suspect is the new (1k miles) Equem spark plugs. I'll swap them out for some NGKs when I head back south.
