    Well hello then, neighbour! Is your micra the grey one with all the black accents and the big white sticker on the back?

    Yes, I've seen this in several different cars that have gone to 6 speeds.

    These days, the automakers seem reluctant to require anybody to shift OUT of top gear once they've gotten there. The result is noise, worse fuel economy and arguably higher engine wear. Not worth it in my opinion.

    I am perfectly capable of upshifting AND downshifting! Give me a tall cruising gear any day. I'll drop it down a cog when I want power.
