Re: Alfa GT 2.0 Selespeed
Most Selespeed problems in the end stem from completely other sources (there is a Selespeed problem on this forum caused by lack of Petrol !) but one has to admit that there is extra electronics and hydraulics added to a manual system, and thus more chance on problems.
I have a (now) 10 year old selespeed 156 and the only problem I had was a broken clutch release bearing (which can happen in any manual car) and I love the damn thing to pieces...
once you are solo on selespeed it is shear fun ! and due to the 'bad' reputation you can buy them for almost nothing !
A friend of mine bought a 156 sele last month for 1600 euro ! a 2003
car with 100k on the meter. Runs like a dream !!!
so go for it ! get it checked with Examiner and put in a new clutch kit , check the sele oil regularly and you have a great car !
