Hi guys, just bought a GTV Cup, and on the way home, I was having a bit of difficulty with the gearbox.
Having just come from a Nissan 200sx that was fitted with a short throw gear linkage, the box in the Alfa seems very loose and the throws feel massive, found myself going from 1st-2nd-1st on more than one occasion. Also, the lever seemed very reluctant to return to the central position between changing gears... Is it the norm for these cars, and I'll have to get used to it?
Also, may be a stupid question, but is there anything I can do with regard to seat height? Again, having come from such a low slung car to another, I feel perched in the Alfa, instead of being apart of it....as pretentious as that sounds, I can't help but feel like I'm sitting very high for such a low roof-lined car.
Finally....the radio, the screen seems to being having some sort of fit and seems reluctant to play CD's. Its no major bother, as I had intending replacing it with an Alpine unit anyway, but is this a common fault?
Thanks in advance,
