    I think you want to be changing a bit later mate. Your car should hit peak power at around 5700 revs in standard form!

    Dont worry about the revs mate you've got a rev limiter that will stop you ragging the nuts out of it. You want to be changing gear where your car cant produce any more power, which is about 6000 on your car if its standard.

    Not too sure about a 1.6 mate, has anyone ever bothered putting a standard 1.6 on a dyno :)

    Only kidding mate, not too sure.

    Yeah, i'd definately be changing higher than that. My A3 150 T Sport used to hit peak at about 5500 before remap and turbo change.... Use the power!! :)

    I used to change up in my old A3 1.8T at about 6000rpm, just before I sold it the car would do near on 70 in 2nd, I know the guy who bought it off me and the cars is still going strong...

    3-4k normally unless something causes me to go higher. I never like to rev it passed 5.5-6 as it doesn't seem right. All the torque is lower down!
