Engine oil and selespeed oil
I have 147 (04) SELESPEED and have a couple of simple questions please.
1/ Engine oil, the book states 10/40w , I recently had the car serviced by an Alfa specialist and forgot to ask what oil had been put in there. I want to know please what is the peoples choice for engine oil and as I don't know the type that is currently in there would it make a difference if I added semi-synthetic or fully synthetic to top it up.
2/ SELEspeed oil, I have checked it using the instructions and topped it up, but was wondering if anybody who has a selespeed can let me know how often they have to top theirs up, I topped mine up last around 5 weeks ago ( 1200 - 1500 miles approx ) . Just wondering whether it others check on a regular basis too.
3/ Mine is now on 30k, I had to have the whole gearbox reconditioned a couple of months ago, fortunately it was on warranty but I would like to get an idea of what sort of high mileage selespeed cars are out there, it doesn't strike me as a a robust car that will last for lots of miles.
Thanks in advance
