This all depends on how your car is tuned and how fast you are accelerating.

I generally shift at 2.5-2.8k, enough that on the next gear it doesn't bog hard.

I generally stay in 3rd going 30 as 4th is way to slow to try to make a move quickly.

Usually shift to 5th at 45mph on normal driving. I think the manual says 46 or 47 is the optimal speed to shift to 5th.

On an unrelated note. What is the optimal RPM range to shift at for optimal fun?
