Hi mate and welcome.
There is a lot of mixed opinion on here about the sele speed a lot of people love them but they do seem to be very problematic .
You should have a good read through some of the threads before you decide.
The biggest problem is there are not to many real experts to service them.
Personally I think they are more trouble than they are worth .
Have a read and see what you think.

as gibot123 said.........think hard........gt 1.9 jtd is the one most choose due to the power and the economy. but then people are wary of turbos........!

It won't be for a while, but a GT is probably going to be top of the list when I next change cars.

The only version I have been actively looking at are the 1.9 JTD's...despite having never owned a diesel before (driven plenty of VW based things at work though in Passats, A4's etc)

Sadly the V6 Q4 isn't a realistic option for everyday use due to fuel costs...:(

Personally I wouldn't buy anything with either JTS or Selespeed in the description either, so the smaller petrol GT is out too!

JTS is fine as long as its got a full history and has been looked after. Selespeed is awful though.....clunky nasty device that is no substitute for a manual unless you only have one leg and have no option.
Avoid diesel....having an Alfa that sounds like a tractor is not worth the extra MPG and torque unless you are broke or poor!
