Ford Fiesta ST speed sensor problems

The speed sensor on my Ford Fiesta ST needs replacing and I've been told its within the ABS Module. Would you recommend a new one and getting it coded or a refurb?

Mixed message here. The speed sensor is in the final drive and the common fault is failure of the oil gasket allowing diff oil into the sensor. Costs £100 - £150 to replace. The common fault with the ABS module is the brake pressure sensor and that can be replaced by sending the module off to www.ecutesting.com for repair, which costs about £400 + removal, shipping and refitting.
