Re: Hi Guys
Had my 2001 147 selespeed since new and after 60K kms have had absolutely no problems. they can feel a little jerky on part throttle upshifts at first but you soon learn to modulate the accelerator to avoid that. Down shifts are awesome especially if you are in the real twisty bits and full throttle upshifts above 5000rpm become quicker (though don't wait for it to hit the redline - it reverts to the standard shift time). The only real hassle is when you are approaching an intersection and you need to get away quickly you can get caught between changes at the wrong time - this can be avoided if you select the appropriate gear before you get to the intersection.
