Finding the correct replacement optical drive... in the UK

The optical drive in my late 2011 MacBook Pro has died. I had a look on the iFixit Europe store and they don't stock replacements at the moment. Customs duty will be a lot if from the US. Could you point me to the correct model for my laptop? I'm struggling with all the letters and numbers (eBay so far)

It'd be great if you could recommend a reliable seller of tested secondhand drives, or a good make for buying new.

Thank you.
