Re: Favorite gear??

Definitely 3rd - that's the gear which separates the fast cars from those with short gearing

Re: Favorite gear??

2nd in my 147GTA with my foot to the floor from time of shift right up to the redline! This is where the change of the intake pipe really makes the engine come alive (I have the Asso carbon-kevlar one) - and no joke, during full on in 2nd she sounds like an exotic supercar...

Re: Favorite gear??

I had to say 2nd cause theres a stretch of dual carriageway at the top of my estate which is the last bit of main road before i get home cars always nicely warmed up and every night i give it a full blast in 2nd to bear on the red line and then into 3rd rarely do i go anywhere that i can redline 3rd comfortably!!

3rd,

Let's her pick up very well from about 20 mph all the way up to 70.....
Just hearing the engine rev from a low dark noise to a high pitch at 6.000 rpm......(shiver)

Re: Favorite gear??

All are fun but third gets the most use and is nice to hold on to right up to the ton (nearly) and then having three more to go. Fantastic.

Re: Favorite gear??

4th. Must be a diesel thing.

tumpty tum..... impatient glance at speedo, yup, still 50.....tappity-tappity fingers on the steering wheel.... wait for the gap, wait, wait, wait.....

BANG!

Glance in rear view mirror with satisfied grin, slip up to 5th, watch horizon blurring.....

It's why, despite test driving countless alternatives, I still have mia bella after nearly 4 years and 78,000 miles.
