I thought it would something along those lines Jim, knew you couldn't with the Pug/Cit ECUs.

Richard, I'm not sure. I can see your point, but having driven a Selespeed equipped Alfa, once you get used to it - it's actually rather fun.

Yes indeed Chris. A day is a long time in FCF-land and things can happen very quickly around here. :lol:

All I know is that I need a project to get my teeth into and I may just have found one..

Should keep me out of mischief for a day or so...

Hopefully, it'll allow me, eventually, to put my red Activa into long-term dry storage and bring it out for shows and special occasions... That's been my plan now for a while.

I regularly drive Audi A6's and Saab 9-5 Aeros's with flappy paddle gears for eight hours a day, I'm not a fan, pointless "Boyracer wish I was a F1 driver tosh" IMO. The latest auto gearboxes are very good indeed, making flappy paddle even more pointless.

Ahh but you forget - I am 22 :roll: :twisted:

No, seriously, I prefer a proper manual gearlever

Each to their own though isn't it really

They do and they are but they seem to be drowned out by certain Xantias calling louder :lol: :lol: :lol:

It seems I'm destined always to be associated with Xantias. It a bit like being stereotyped or should that be monotyped :roll:

Having just one thing you're good at, works brilliantly for AC/DC.

I'd love to be good at just one thing Adam. I'm a jack of all trades me :roll: What we at work call a Generalist...

My new Activa project is due and planned to arrive on the back of a trailer Friday morning. I have already secured alternate parking nearby for one of my others so that my immediate area is not badly cluttered.

The heatshrink for potential ram repairs has arrived today. I shall have a go at that as soon as health and weather permit. Health is better today I'm happy to say and the doctor has diagnosed a nasty viral infection, the after-effects of which may linger for a while; in the meantime I'm ordered not to overdo it and continue to relax and take it easy.

I don't know how you will get it into the lounge...

Sorry to hear your not well Jim :(, but glad to hear your on the mend :)

A new project involving an Activa and a V6 engine.... that sounds very exciting :D :D Give me a call/PM if you want a hand with anything, I'd be happy to be involved when ever I can muster a free weekend :)

I personally would love to see a tiptronic/flappy paddle Activa, but I'm lazy and like these automatic gearboxes ;)

I think this icon is most appropriate representation of a V6 Activa 8-)
