Shifting
 
Hi all:

Question to fellow 5.0'ers. What rpm is everyone shifting @, normal driving conditions.

With an m5 2k I find is just putting along. In my e21 i have to put it upto 3 to 3.5k just to get anywhere, and 4k if i want to keep up with traffic froma light.

95 325is, i usually shift at about 2k, unless accelerating on an on-ramp to a highway, in which probably 2.5 and maybe 4th gear at 3K

Its all a matter of what you like. In my 318 its usually 3.5k-4k.

Thanks for all the replies. Seems like each person has their own preference. I personally shift @ 4 and maybe 3.5 in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Usually in city conditions @2500-3000rpm in e36 sedan. Also, depends where the consumption needle is. If its below 15mpg i usually upshift.
