    If it helps you source one quicker, I guess a VW Golf and Seat Leon 1.6 would do the same job maybe?

    If it is your car or you can access it, check the sticker in the service book and/or the sticker on the boot floor, should give you the gearbox code on there.

    Failing that, check on the gearbox casting, pretty sure it is stamped into the cast towards the rear from where the shift mechanism enters the 'box, u would probably have to remove the airbox to see that though?

    im pretty sure theres only two types, and it just matters for you to get the one that you have, you can find which one it is from the colour of the like plastic cap on the side of the gearbox, the bit with a vw logo, mine was green, im pretty sure its this because this is what i had to do to get the correct one when mine broke 3 months ago...

    there are loads of 'reconditioned' ones on fleabay for about the 500-600 mark.
    I would prefer to go for a recon'd one. Especially if there is no surcharge as you could then get a price for having yours recon'd and sell it on?
    it's an option anyway.

    Having recently replaced the gearbox in my S3, if your the seller provides the ancillary sensors check they all work and none of the wire is stripped leading from the sensors/remove them all and use the ones you know are working from your old box.

    If your stuck for a good company, mine came with a 90 day warranty from a company up north called motors in motion, specialists in dismantling VAG cars they were helpful and prompt (next day delivery).

    Thanks guyz,
    Basically i have located one pretty cheap from a private seller,
    he said the engine has gone on his car
    and he doesnt really know anything about the parts
    so should i risk it,
    Ive had a look around a used one for a 1.6 is around 200 mark but this one is way cheaper.

    haha mate, you are asking people on here if you should part with your green!
    At the end of the day it is completely and utterly a 50/50 gamble buying unproven parts like that 2nd hand.

    Buy it IF YOU WANT TO, and for what it is worth, I genuinely really hope it is A-okay and works out for you. worst that happens is that it isn't and you do the work over again.
