As far as I am aware all boxes from 05 to 18 are compatible and from 09 on they've got sealed bearings which saves a potential rebuild.

Totally awful pictrue from my cheap chinesium endoscope thru the oil filling plug of my 2013 gearbox when i bught it.
But it shows the green closed bearing.

So if in doubt it should be possible to check if your used gearbox has the updated bearings with the closed sides. 
Color may vary of course.

My 2005 gearbox failed in 2018 after one year of exposing it to the hundred horses of the m16 engine.
Now i have driven the car with the newer box for five years and must be approx 60000km or more.

Bitumen underseal or something greasy can be put over the damage when you insert the new shaft seal. Or Even tec7 or sika. Easy fix.
If there is bearing noise from the box then swap it before it breaks down.
