I have to support Antman on this, after 9 years of Selespeed driving (and a brother who is a mechanic at an Alfa dealership helps too !) I learned my lesson, if all surrounding equipment is renewed and still niggles, the box is the culprit.
Selespeed is very harsh on the gearbox, it shifts gears with a vengeance (55 bar pressure can even load and fire a 15 inch canon). In the begining of selespeeds sold to the innocent customers, a part inside the box broke
because it was of the same strength and thickness of the normal man operated gearbox, this caused massive grief and a lot of warranty repairs and gave the Sele a bad reputation)
