Ephraim, I had a Phase 1 GTV 5-speed a number of years ago. I've now got a Phase 2 6-speed ...and I personally do prefer the 5-speed, it just felt a bit more quicker esp in 2nd / 3rd gear low-down. I'm guessing the ratios have something to do with it. The 6-speed is obviously much better on the m'way though for cruising & economy.
I've since had my 6-speed re-mapped by Gus at Alfatune St Helens & the difference was noticeable immediately. Not much extra power but just more responsive all the way through the rev range in all gears which was the idea.
