GTA Selespeed

Hi Folks

I'm looking to order a GTA in the next couple of weeks but am not sure whether to go for the Selespeed box or manual.

I've driven the manual a couple of times but have yet to see a selespeed version.

I know its a six speed box but has anyone got any more info on it, like shift speeds etc??

As far as I know the GTA Selespeed can be ordered but is not available till October/November.

My dealership told me that the Selespeed gearbox is totally redesigned for the GTA and can't be compared to the selespeed transmission of the 147 and 156.

Although there are no figures available (haven't seen them yet), I would go for the Selespeed.

Go for the 6-speed manual, as you can be assured that at 'some point' the selespeed WILL go all Pete Tong!

That you from scoobynet?

If most of your driving is for pure pleasure, blasts out and trackdays that sort of thing I would go for the selespeed.

If you do a lot of town/city driving I would take the manual as the selespeed still isn't great around town but is great fun when on the open road.

Most of the early selespeed problems have been ironed out although the 147 still suffers from false electronic messages on the dashboard display. Never had a single missed gear, warning light or hiccup with my selespeed. (Kiss of death maybe. wink )

Yep Jinxy from Scoobynet

Decided to change the Scooby and the 156 GTA got the vote. Just wanted something that I could hold a conversation with a passenger when doing over 10 mph but still had the performace of the Scooby.

Will be doing mainly motorway miles with the odd blast or 3 and a bit around town as well. Might try the 2.0 Selespeed and see how I get on with that.

What ever I decide gonna be black with the Motorsport alloys.
