Re: 147 Selespeed woes... Only just bought the car. Pls Help!
Unlikely to be caused by low Selespeed fluid.
Most likely is that the system just needs calibrating properly.
You need to find a good Alfa specialist that has the Alfa Examiner diag system. If they don't have the Examiner, they can't do it.
To check the Selespeed fluid level, turn the ignition on then open the cap on the round tank near the left wing (under the bonnet).
There is only 0.6L of fluid in the entire system, so the gap from "Max" to "Min" isn't much.
Make sure you use the correct Selenia CS Speed Fluid (it is a very high spec full synthetic ATF fluid, but don't just use any old ATF, it won't be good enough).
