Mein Auto: 2004 645Ci Convertible
High RPM

6th gear. 2850 RPM. 75 MPH

Manual gearbox, 2004 645Ci convertible.

Does this seem like high RPM to other owners of manual cars?

Or has a previous owner fitted a modified differential?

That is similar to mine (650i). I find that mine runs at higher RPMs than I would have expected at cruising speeds, which I simply assumed was normal for this car.

I've been struck by how high the RPMs are with the manual at a given speed. Not sure what it would be different than the automatic, but it clearly seems to be.
