If it cruches into second gear,then I suspect the syncro on it has worn.This is probably as a result of the gearbox oil being run low,so expect further problems with it.

If you factor in the cost of a second hand box(around 200 for a good one with a 3 month warranty) and the labour to fit it if you need a garage to do so,then you'll be fine.It's always a good idea to change the clutch at the same time,so add a bit more for that(around 100)If the cars cheap enough,then you should be fine..The 'box thats in there might last a long while yet,so that'll be even better!

At least the seller has been honest!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
