    I have a 147 1.9 120HP with a 5 speed gearbox but I feel like it could really use an extra gear. How difficult would it be to put in a 6 speed one from a 16v? I'm guessing it should be straightforward since the engines are basically the same? Any other modifications which would have to be made...

    We all do it - configure the car we can't afford. Both alfaromeo uk and it websites only offer 120hp for petrol and diesel G's. A sign of something, or just a crud website? No pdf brochures to download - they want my first name, last name, sex, email, consent to marketing activities, consent...

Also as they are not the biggest car...
