How the heck did they manage to get into 6th gear at 30mph?! :eek: What gear were they supposed to go for? 6th gear is a long way from 3rd or 4th (well it seems it to me :rolleyes: - but then i couldnt get reverse gear with one hand to start with :rolleyes: )

I do like 6th on the m/way though - ooo the power! :D

6th Gear

Yes I noticed the same thing. Car needs to be on the flat or it dies but very odd. I usually try and get in 6th whenever possible for economy. Reminds me of the way automatics creep forward.

Much more preferable than when they go from 6/4 to 1st without a reduction in speed :)

......... or 4th to 3rd via reverse like one of my wife's colleagues pupils did a few days ago.

The gear linkage went, it was recovered to the dealership and repaired the same day.
