Pairing and matching 500 series modules

After using plugin EQ's for a long time I am finally diving into the 500 series world. I listened to a few EQ's a friend of mine has in his studio and the difference was amazing vs. plugins.

What I am wondering for those that have multiples of the same module does it make a difference if they are not from the same batch when they were manufactured?

I am buying a few used modules to start out with. However if I want to expand on say some API modules that were manufactured 5-10 years ago will I have issues if I buy the same model new? I have read a few other posts and it seems that some engineers are adamant on getting the modules as close as possible as far as serial numbers go.
