<strong>Sounds like Alfa have screwed up again.
These problems were fixed once and for all (in my experience and from these posts) in Campaign 4407 - this was the software upgrade for the 156 Selespeed in December 2001.
It sounds like they didn't make the changes to the 147 software!
I have not had one problem since my upgrade (except once!). Prior to that, 3rd gear was not been auto selected, stalling, the whole works ...</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">There are definately software upgrades available for 147 Selespeeds. I had mine upgraded about two weeks ago - the dealer reckons it "fixes lots of issues". Mine was upgraded off the the latest service CD from Fiat (my dealer had only just received it...it was still shrinkwrapped).
I think it is also smarter when changing down and reaccelerating...with smoother changes at places like traffic lights and intersections.
