I have 2002 325i with manual transmission. at 80mph rpm's are 3500, 5th gear.
Old Honda Civic with automatic 4 speed transmission does the same thing.
Hope this helps

bimmas dont have overdrive like american cars.... so you will have higher revs in 5th than in an american car, but cars with overdrive have absolutely no power in OD
