Automatic Gear Expert

Is there an in- house transmission expert?
My auto 1.9 transmission just died - GM P/N 96018240 (F36 SG also written on label)
I have been offered a 96017506 and a 96018242.
Is there a simple way/resource/reference to find out if either one matches?
Any insight would be appreciated as I'm in the middle of the boondocks as far as on hand breakers parts are concerned.

Quick search on the web using the part numbers came up with these ... 0-96017506 ... 967?_ul=BO ... 2102003070

Looks like 506 came from BMW Series 3 E36 316i 318i M43 engine.

242 from E36 318i and 318ti 1997/8

Not much help for you as the used ones are in USA.
No doubt someone will be along with more knowledge on suitability of a replacement.
