Default Bosch TB - Purchase new contactless or used from wreckyard?

Well my throttle body saga continues but I think I'm making progress. This is for a 2004 S60 2.5T with Bosch ETB.

I thoroughly cleaned it out yesterday and had some troubles with idle/stalling after re-installation. Thanks to some old posts I was able to learn that you can recalibrate the throttle by turning ignition to position 2 for 45s, turn ignition off for 5s and then starting up. This corrected the stall issues and all the CEL's are gone.

Unfortunately, the idle is still pretty unsteady so it looks like a new TB is in order. My question to anyone willing to throw in an opinion is: should I just go to the wreckyard and roll the dice on a used TB or go with a contactless TB from Xemodex (I happen to live close by to Xemodex here in Toronto so not a big deal). The cost for the Xemodex contactless would probably be more than double the wreckyard price.

2003 V40 1.9T B4204T4, 197,000miles (sold but alive!), 2004 S60 2.5T, 160,000miles, 2010 V70 3.2, 125,000miles, 2002 V70XC 2.4, 175,000miles
