Default TCU replacement coding

I have recently bought a 2010 model 330d BMW which has the modern optical control system for various systems. I bought an Icom A and B so that I could code the car using the optical port on the car. The first run of the diagnostics showed that a couple of the media related devices needed replacing (although they work fine). I posted the following thread and was advised that it was likely a TCU control unit failure.

This makes sense to me, as I could also not programme the car because it said the MOST port was not connected, and the ICOM B does not illuminate the light to show it is connected.

I have bought a second hand replacement TCU, and when I connect it and run the diagnostics, that 'tree' of the diagnostics shows a failure:

It needs to be coded to my car, but because it is the control system to code the car it is proving very tricky.

I did some research and it looked like I could code it with WINKFP, but I need to identify the exact 'ZB number'. When I use inpa to list the modules in the car, I cannot see the TCU listed. It is very dangerous to code the wrong one with WINKFP, so I need some advice on which is the unit to code with my VIN. The following picture shows the full list of modules that I can re-code:

This is the details from the TCU in my car that I believe has failed.

Does anyone know how I can get this replacement TCU coded to my car. I would be so grateful. I have spend days trying to fix this issue. the main reason I want to change it is so that I can get the full programming capability of the ICOM functioning, which I can't so without the MOST bus working.
