    Yes, they ask for your car's details so that they can sell you the right box.

    You need to match gearbox & engine codes, not all are compatible with eachother, so be very careful.

    Also worth giving AMDTuning a call(if you're in the London area) as they have a supplier who rebuilds gearboxes,and may be able to help you.
