yeah, match your revs, you can do something called "seemless downshifting", its when you know where your rpms will be if you downshifted(I know from 4th to 3rd it will raise exactly 1000 rpm), so say Im at 3000 rpm in 4th, and I am gonna dowshift, Id keep the gas on exactly where it was previously(to stay going straight, no extra gas, jsut a little) and let the rpms raise to 4000 and let out the clutch, and there is NO jerking whatsoever, its a perfect downshift. to sum it up, know what RPM's your car will be at in certain gears and how much they will raise and drop after being shifted. For me(89 325iS, 5spd:1st to second=2000, 2cnd to 3rd=1500, 3rd to 4th=1000, 4th to 5th=about 5 or 600. hope that helped
