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.

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.
