In my 147 JTDm normal gear changes are 1,2,3,4 then 6 at anything above 45 - 50......it's not really happy even to trundle at less than 40 in 6th, so if needing to drop to that speed normally drop straight down to 3rd or 4th, depending on whether I want to accelerate or cruise.
Don't really see why its a 6-speed rather than 5, to be honest.
Same in the 156 V6......although 6th in that could be significantly higher......
