Gear Box to Change or not to change?

I currently have a punto 1.9D not the more common JTD (w reg) and my gear box sounds like it is going to need changing. The gear box has a whine in 2nd and occaisonally makes a very rough noise on 4th and 3rd gear (usually when it is cold). I am planning on selling the car soon to buy another fiat.

The car has done 130,000 miles but still runs well apart from the gear box.

The car will soon need a new gear box and I am planning on selling it in the summer. Is it worth me changing the gear box before i sell it? (will i get a return or break even on the investment?)

any thoughts I would be grateful

Re: Gear Box to Change or not to change?

It will be VERY hard to sell with a shot gearbox so would have to sell very cheap to get rid. A new box should at least break even, may save money overall and deffo save hassle when selling.
