No 'oomph' in 1st?
OK, so I love my 156 V6 and it absolutely flies, but I often feel it's somewhat lacking in 1st, revving away and not really laying down the speed to match. Once I get it into 2nd though it feels like it's going to take off by comparison. And before you say it I'm not changing gear like a slouch, ragging it up to 6500rpm if I'm driving it hard.
Has anyone else noticed this, is it just some slightly odd gearing on the v6 box? Can't imagine it being a problem with my car really, gears all mesh smoothly and there's never any hesitation when I put my foot down...
