Selespeed for me has meant no problems at all, in over two years and 35,000km... car now has 254,500km on the clock. Manual on the other hand, you may end up with a horrible heavy, creaky clutch like in my 90,000km Spider and a sticky, notchy gearchange - things to live with every day. Plus there's the risk of stalling it. Selespeed was more expensive in the first place, probably cheaper now that no-one wants it. I'm hoping to convert my Spider to Selespeed but it won't be easy, the engine ECU and wiring will have to be changed. Alfa Romeo never made a Selespeed Spider so I had to settle for the manual; it immediately reminded me of driving my Uno Turbo...
