Alfa 166 3.0V6

Alfa 166 3.0 V6

I have an Alfa 166 3.0 V6 (2001 with just over 80,000miles) with 10 months MOT but dont know what to do with it. It has all the usual "owning an Alfa is fun" features - basically anything electric has a temperament

The ECU is faulty which causes an intermittant gear box issue making it think it should be in "limp home" mode thus having only one forward gear of 3rd.

I want to sell it but not sure if better to sell as is or to strip it and sell in bits. What do you recommend?

Still think it is a great car and have loved it....
