Question Autobox Query

Hi all, being on my first BMW, a 1990 e30 325i, I wonder if anyone can help with a query about the automatic gearbox. I know it's a 4 speed, but it appears that there was an option for a multi-mode box with eco/sports modes.

My question is...is this a totally different box or can it be fitted as an upgrade package to my existing box?

Still looking...

Thanks for that link, had a look and am still not quite sure. It appears to show that it's the same box but with an ECU attached to control the shifting. Am I right? If so will my existing loom have the connections to drop one, (and any other bits, like the mode knob), straight in? Can anyone help?
