How floppy is your stick ?

I have had my 2005 1.6 Alfa 147 less than a week.
Do all of these have what I would term a floppy gearstick, one that can be moved about an inch side to side when on the move
I am used to a gearstick which is very firm and doesnt move at all, and wondered if I have a future problem looming

Replacing the bushings under the gearbox did help sharpen up my 'return to centre', but there has always been a reasonable amount of play. Just part of the normal character of the car and nothing to be concerned about.

Worth bearing in mind that the stick is quite long and will exaggerate the effect.
