147 Selespeed

It's a bit like an auto, except the auto mode is rubbish and it changes gear very quickly. Great for chucking down twist country roads. It's fun but takes a few miles to get used to.

Someone will probably be along in a minute to give a definitive list of things to look out for, but in brief; obvious things like does it select all the gears correctly? and are warning messages?. Also check the selespeed fluid level, it's on the right hand side of the engine bay. Being a bit jerky is normal until you get the hang of driving them.

Recommend, tough one. I like mine, but it's probably not for everyone. Not least because if the box starts playing up or breaks all together you can't (or perhaps shouldn't) just take it into any garage.
