When to shift MT on 328i

Just curious if there is anyone else out there with a manual transmission on a 328i. At what RPM do you usually shift for normal driving?

I don't know what I would suggest, in my e30 for normal driving its 3500rpm for me, but I like to rev it out on a very regular basis.

Yeah somewhere between 3 and 3500 with an occasional near 4000 is about typical for me.

I've been shifting it around 3K. It seems to shift the smoothest here and give me decent acceleration.
