Default Bad transmission - which fix to chose?

Hope this is the right place to post this. Have an '05 Passat Wagon GLS. Needs new transmission (including valve body and torque converter). Options are:

1) used transmission with 110k on it - $2200 - 6 mo warranty
2) rebuild - $3500 - 1 yr warranty
3) remanufactured - $5000 - 3 yr warranty

Car is very clean and well maintained otherwise (to my knowledge). Bought from meticulous guy 4.5 years ago. All oil changes done regularly. Timing belt done at
86k as well as new tires and both cv boots. Has 136k now.

What to do? Would like to drive another 50k but also considering selling.
Appreciate any feedback.

I have a good, used, well maintained transmission that came from a wrecked car. $500, you'll have to come get it though.

260k (or around there), new converter installed around 135k. Belonged to a regular customer of mine. Still bolted to the engine, removed from car, sitting on a bench in my garage.

It was regularly serviced with the proper fluid since new.

Looks to me like you are both in Louisville, KY.

Swap it over to a 5 speed or 6 speed manual and call it a day.
