Gearbox issues and some advice please ?

Hi all,

Car is a 2001 147 1.6 Think I've lost synchro on third gear trying to change gear quickly results in a grinding noise, however when i change gear slowly it goes ok. I also have the wooly fourth gear issue.

Shopped around and found a gearbox with 12,000miles on it for £200 inc vat is this a good buy ? also with its mileage im guessing it might be from a facelifted car, does this mean it will fit onto my 2001 ?

Rang the garage who will do it and they are suggesting I should also have a new clutch fitted. Again full clutch with new slave cylinder I've been quoted as £135 inc vat again is this a decent buy ? (part only)

I'm not mechanically minded in the slightest I'm afraid so I wouldnt know how to fit these myself so how much would I be looking at in labour charges roughly

Sorry for the long winded post but all help very much appreciated.
