Yeah I tested a mini cooper s the other week, went up the A45 to 120ish and left it in 5th at almost full revs wondering how it was suppose to be able to hit 135 when i relaised it had six gears and slipped it into 6th trying to look like I remembered it was there all along :D

When I first drove an Audi TT (the first 6 speed car I drove) I got in a right pickle, changing into a gear higher than 5th just seemed so unnatural! :D

Do that all the time. Supra has 6, the company golf 5. I'm forever trying to put the Golf into 6th - just glad that reverse is over the other side of the gearbox. What's amazing is that 5th in the Golf (it's a TDi 110) is the same as 6th is the Supra! What's even more shiocking is that on the 6-speed Golfs, the 6th on them is even longer, making about 2000rpm at 70mph :eek:

Of course, when I get back into the Supe I keep trying to go for 7th, and have occasionally tried to go for 8th :rolleyes:
