I think most on here will agree, there's no point buying a cheap gearbox.

Once you factor in the time and effort taken to replace the gearbox, (if your not doing this job yourself, its a very expensive one) theres no point putting anything other than a properly recondition box in there.

the 1.4/1.6 transmissions are far from bullet proof. I wouldn't trust a second hand one, which you have no history on, and no idea of its condition, until its too late [:(]

Its for this reason, ive decided in my mind, that if my transmission goes, ive got two options; 1.8T conversion or Break it for spares.
