Here in the UK they dont even do selesped anymore due to all the faults with the gen 1 box. They got such a bad reputation that no one wil touch them, a shame as I love the system. Gen 2 boxes on were much better though and I think by now they shoudl have pretty much sorted all the issues. The box is supplied by magnetti marelli who aslo do BMW and several other prestige robotised clutch systems so people saying typical Alfa are wayyyy off the mark. I had a gen 2 156 seleespeedd for 5 years and did over 50,000 miles and it never missed a beat. 500 Euro extra for insurance sounds excessive to me.
