156 selespeed

Chilling alfa 156 selespeed

Hi Chris here,:

I am soon to be a new alfa 156 selespeed owner and i got a really weird question?

The car i have my eye on was first registered in December 2001 but it is on a W reg??

Could this be a private plate or an import?

I have done a HPI check and its clear.

Also not havent driven a selespeed before i have heard reviews that they can be troublesome?

Any feedback welcome

Hi chris, welcome to the AO family

The selespeed transmission has its fans and its detractors, however it is generally thought of not very reliable, particularly on early cars, which the one you're looking at may well be.

Have a look through the threads (searching for Selespeed) and I am sure you'll find plenty of information

Hi Chris and welcome.

Let's hope you are not put off getting a selespeed but, as BigFoot says, it is well worth having a read of the relevant threads before finally deciding.

Re: alfa 156 selespeed

Hi Chris. Welcome to AO.

If the car was registered in December 2001 it should be a 51 plate shouldn't it?

Maybe it is a private plate but I'd want to know before buying it and I'd want an age related plate throwing in too.
