Unhappy Puzzled gearbox

Hi I just changed the clutch in my 2004 Cooper RHD I drained the gearbox oil there was only a little swarf on the magnetic plug so oil finished up in waste oil tank a couple of days ago. Me plank because now I don't know what to refill it with Autodata gives several confusing choices how do I tell what gearbox I have

What month of 2004?
Is it a Midlands box or a Getrag? (I'm assumming an R50 since you
didn't say Cooper S). They changed from Midlands to Getrag in July 2004.
Midlands takes Texaco MTF-94, and Redline MTL 75W80 is a good substitute.
Getrag boxes are specified for BMW MTF LT-3, and Redline D6 ATF is a good
substitute (yes, even though it's a manual box,this is the right viscosity).
