Help!! New selespeed issue
I bought a 147 Selespeed and have had no problems at all. Everything is good! And hunky dory.
I've just bought another one - for my son, 2002 from ebay. It was a dealer that obviously buys and sells very quickly at high volumes...
Anyway, they just called me up and said that upon testing it they have found it has a problem with the Selespeed box. It was described to me as being jumpy on take off and sometimes refusing to go into first ect. He then offered to take £700 off the price, and said it was drivable to get home and that in his opinion he thinks it's either a solenoid, ECU or some other electrical problem. To me it doesn't sound like a new gearbox jobby, but i'll decide after i've seen and taken it for a drive tomorrow.
What does everyone think? If it is a solenoid/actuator or ECU fault, how much are we talking? I mean £700 seems like plenty to solve even the most awful of problems?
