New to Selespeed

Hi, I've just bought a 147 and having driven manual cars like - forever - am having trouble adjusting to Selespeed, I love everything else about it, but am left feeling a little disppointed... Will it take long to get used to it? And is it ultimately better than manual once you do?

Hi mate, welcome to AO!

I loved the SS transmission on my old 147, it won't take long to get yoursef used to it. I'd say, you need to learn how to modulate the throttle a little and then it'll be perfect!

It takes time to get used to the Selespeed and they are best when driven hard. You dont need to lift your foot off the throttle when changing up gears and the change is faster with higher revs and 75% to full throttle position.
