Betta getta ESPer

I have just had the dreaded ESP light come up on my Ford Focus 2005 2.0TDCI. Fault code C1288. New part from Ford £1,300 plus VAT. Can get the abs unit reconditioned for £350? There are a few others online who are complaining about the costs of this repair on a 5-year-old car on a non-serviceable part.
