      You are looking around £900 for a gearbox rebuild at a specilist and buying new is around £2000 + Labour. Won't get much change from £2500 I don't expect.

                mine developed a whine that got louder and louder, needed a new gearbox. Sadly my car was 3 months out of warranty but I contacted VX and they agreed to pay half of the costs.

                This was due to me having a full Vauxhall service history. Still cost me £1300 tho!

                    I had my box reconditioned at Tameside Transmissions as it had a whining in 5th and 6th and a grinding vibration through the gearstick,for around 950

                          my gearbox went last week and vx quoted £1700 just for the box excluding vat and your looking at around £600 for the labour iirc. they do an exchange box which £1074 excluding vat. fitted it works out at around £2100 depending on which vx dealer u go to
