    Why BE1, the ratios are identical to the series 2 BE3.
    There is what you want in the parts for sale section, this has the same ratios as the S1/S2 box except for first gear which has been raised (same as S3 or Mi16).
    It was described as S3 box but with 3.9 to diff ratio to reflect his.
    It has a Quaife LSD fitted so the price is excellent.

    The BE1 and 3 are identical except the BE3 is improved and reverse is to the left and up whereas the BE3 has it in the normal place.
    You will also need a reverse lockout cable on your gearshift if you want use the BE1.
    Generally the BE1 was fitted in the series 1 and the BE3 in the series 2.
    The ratios of both these boxes are identical for the 205 and they both use a 3.9 final drive.
    The S3 205 GTi used a BE3 but with a 3.6 final drive and a higher first gear.
    The Mi16s also used BE1 and BE3 and once again the ratios the same between the two but different to the 205.
    If you still want a 205 GTi BE1 after all that, I do have one available and yes, if you can't find a BE3 with a 3.9 final drive it may be the only option.

    Any GTi box will be OK for this purpose.
