Re: Would you buy a selespeed?
Having driven a GT 3.2 V6 Selespeed I would say no. Upshifts are slow and feel like the car has a hiccup. It declutches, slows down, shifts, engages clutch and accelerates and you feel every step of the process.
On the other hand it blips the throttle when you downshift and assists you when braking hard by downshifting as fast as possible taking the engine to 7000rpm.
City mode is good, shifts up at about 3500-4000rpm in half throttle but takes the engine near the cut-off at full throttle.
I hear there is a tuner somewhere that can remap the sele ECU so that upshifts get considerably faster but you have to remember to take it easy when the gearbox is cold.
