    General BMW Discussions
    Hello, I'm after a bit of advice. I have an f30 320i with a superchips remap, which is great. But the car does not accelerate as well in 6th as it does in any other gear. It's quite noticeable. I even timed it from 50 to a higher speed and it's quicker in 7th. I've spoken to mechanics, gearbox...

    Hi, I'm recently experiencing a strange issue. When I hard accelerate in 5th and 6th gear at around 2500 - 3000 RPMs (as the turbo is kicking in) the RPM gauge is jumping back and forth as the speed increases.

    General BMW Discussions
    I'm currently still to do a brim-brim on my 330Cd to check consumption and do some real research. But I *think* when I look at the economy meter, at 70mph and < 2000 rpm, in 6th it's at about 40mpg and at ~2300 rpm, in 5th it seems to be nearer 50mpg Is this an illusion or should I have it...

    just picked up a new car(ish) and it's the first car I have owned that has 6 gears. In most cars 5th is the long distance cruising\overdrive gear, is 6th gear the same i.e. use 1 to 5 and when the need arises you put it into 6th and relax on the motorway. Or do you use 1 to 4 as normal and...
