    Congrats, by any chance do you have a shorter final drive in your car? Nearly 3k RPM at 115 km/h is pretty high revs if you're in 6th

    Yes, it's a 3.46 installed by PO. I really like it around the city but yeah it's definitely a bit louder at higher speeds!

    Good eye!

    Funny, because that's about what the e46m3 runs... just a hair under 3k at 120 km/h. I wish 6th was a tad taller for MPGs.
