i have a 147 2.0 Selespeed. Car is an absolute piece of $h1t... i hate Alfa because of this bloody gearbox. i will never ever buy an Alfa again. i also have BMW, Subaru and a Nissan. I will stick to those cars.

it's a pity because the Alfa handles nicely. But the car is useless when it comes to taking a beating, and i am shocked at how Alfa could release something as shockingly disgraceful as this f#@$$#$ing Selespeed in a production car with so many issues and risks.

I am not an enthusiastic owner, and have only been pointed to this forum seeking help on fixing this motherf@#$#@$er of an excuse for a car.

I am convinced that Alfa hired Satan to design the Selespeed.

Once thee car is fixed, i am selling it for a song... and i will disappear off into the sunset, not to be heard of in the Alfa New production models community ever again.

what a disappointment... this is not the same heritage as the Giulietta Group One 1.8 that i used to own in the 1980s!!!!!!


I hope the company burns into the ground now and gets bought out by a german giant who will teach them a thing or two!

F@#$@# this!

Re: Hello

Hi Ras,

The Selespeed system on my GTA is brilliant... It reacts and adjusts instantaneously to engine rpm/road speed/throttle position/braking etc, and is smooth and quiet in operation.

However I did rent a standard 2.0 147 selespeed for a day the last time my car was in for servicing, and the selespeed system was very detached and clunky
