The selespeed semi-automatic box has indeed not gotten the greatest of reputations in Alfas, but the pump and ancilliaries of the same system are used in the Maserati 4200 and similar in Quattroporte, whilst not perfect, if carefully checked and manintained they don't give too much bother. I've had mine 4 years and done 30K plus miles with no issues

The Selespeed semi automatic gearbox .... is every bit as bad as everyone says it is.

Not everyone says that! I like the Selespeed in my 156 and it works very well  Cheesy

That was the plan until the second Dilambda arrived and the Fulvia has had to be parked outside.  Cry

Nice to know that some of you have had success with a Selespeed box but as you know, you are very much in the minority. The final straw for me was when it needed a new actuator and pump which was going to cost almost more than the car was worth and wasn't a guarantee that it would solve the problem. It is a very nice system when it's working well and great fun to use but so unreliable.
