Ive only driven mine a total of about 10 hours and i love it dont get me wrong but if it needs anything i would think it definitely needs a sixth gear, does anyone else agree just thinking out loud

do you have the 6s (v6) or 6i (i4), brumy? I wish my car had a 6th gear too, but once you drive it around for a while it won't bug you. Keeps you right in the power for highway passing, and you'll still get good highway gas mileage even if it looks like your 6 should be guzzling gas.

when i first got the car. i complained too

but truth is. the engines so butter smooth. i tend to forget
plus realize that ur car will be scrapped FAR before ur engine wears out.

Not me.
I have a 6i and I spend most of my time in 3rd and 4th already. If I had a 6th gear I know I would never use it.

I guess 6s people might want one and I think Speed6 people have one.

I thought this since the drive home from the dealer...

It'd be nice to slip it into 6th and see those RPM's dip into the 2K's while I'm doing 70-80.

I'd settle for a deeper 5th cog. My brother's 6 speed G35 coupe convinced me that sometimes 6 gears are entirely too much of a pain in the rear.
