Just wondering during your daily driving when do you shift gears (not when you're racing or going fast intentionally)?

In the city I tend to shift around 3000, but on the highway between 3500-4000.

I would say minimally shift at 4k... read somewhere that it is actually worse babying it like that.

3.5k - 4k, but mostly 4k, simply because it feels better... B)
5k is rare, maybe once or twice a day...

Depending on road condition and grade:
I have tendency to shift at lower RPM in snow for obvious reasons.
Also at high RPM, 5k, on significant inclines and 2.5k on significant downhill slopes.
Also shifting RPM is highly depends on the mood and cost of gas.

When needle rapidly rolls out of the red there is a unique sensation in the pit of your stomack comparable only with feeling fistburger getting from your crutch...

What do you mean, shift? Doesn't the car do that automatically?

Why do I only have two pedals on the Floor?
