-reliable vs problematic?
FYI i'm not an owner of any Alfa model, so i don't have any experience on this. Hope Alfa owner can share theirs. Thanks.

other that this 2, at the early times of tiptronic gearboxes they are all automatics with override mode. Even Porsche 911 and Honda NSX were using conventional automatic transmission with torque converter back then.
so, Alfa was one of the earliest to use manual gearbox heavy with motors and sensors and as ppl in the industry know - they are not that reliable.
Things improved a lot in the 159 models, but on the 156 - car itself being a decade old - the risks are pretty high.
not unless u r an alfisti though.
or you have a spare car to use because it will spend a lot of time in the workshop.
