Re: Anybody have a good thing to say about the Selespeed?
as with everything about an Alfa, you have to look after it. dont and you will face hefty bills. if you are getting one, try to find one that either has a complete clean sheet, ie no selespeed problems EVER, or one that has had major components replaced, such as the actuators.
great drive, will take time to get used to if you are used to driving a "stick" though.
mine is a 2000 156 sele, only thing that hasnt gone wrong is the selespeed system(touch wood) and nothing wrong with that. only wee niggle with mine is that it sometimes wont go into reverse from neutral, i have to shift into 1st then back into R, but other than that, its fine.
it may also annoy you by not dropping into 1st gear until you have actually stopped moving too, but i always shift down into 1st as a matter of course/habit now.
