Transmission Kits Choice

Looking at this here:


And wondering to myself... "will I really see a difference?"
It's not any large sum of money I suppose, but it makes me wonder nonetheless.
Thoughts?

Will you see a difference between those kits or the difference after the fluid change and new filter??
For the kit I highly recommend Meistersatz kit, it is a exact fit. I have just ordered my second one for the second ATF change. It's good preventive maintenance you might see a slight difference in shifting and smoothness of the transmission or you might not.

Difference between the kits . I'm going to be doing a lot of maintenance this week if all goes as planned so I'm trying to cover all of my bases. Was your kit around the same price?
