My MT E93 is now 26 months old, and I've still not broken 15K on the odometer. I've never been one to rely solely on the tach for my shiftpoint cues, rather I was taught to listen to the engine. However, that being said, I've noticed in the last few months that between listening to the engine and watching the tach, I'm making my shift points at higher points, typically in the 4-5K range, whereas a few months ago the 3-4K range felt right.

So my question is, am I just getting more accilmated to wringing more out of each gear, or is it truly that my gearbox and engine are breaking in more and okay with the higher shift points?

As long as I am not doing damage, I am loving the responsiveness at the higher revs. I didn't think the MT transmission was as drive style sensitive, but perhaps I am in error?

Other impressions would be welcome.
