Just got a new 325Ci with a manual 5-speed. I was wondering what the reccomended rpms were for both cruising and shifting?? I previously had a mitsubishi and never accelerated much over 4000rpms and usually cruised somewhere in the low 3000s. However, my bimmer seems comfortable cruising around 3600 / 3700 rpms with acceleration going well over 4000...
Is there a consensus on what levels to shift and cruise at?

thanks for the replies!
So its really OK to run the RPMs that high from time to time???
I guess I'm just used to my old car which would NEVER take that!
