: What do you think of the 6-speed? I've had mine a few weeks and it seems fairly notchy. Does this improve with break-in? Does Redline oil help?

: Thanks,

: : I tried this first in my '97 540/6 and had great results; now have it in my '00 540/6. No more draggy shifting into second when cold, can't fool the synchros, and seems to be quieter - but perhaps this is only wishful thinking.

I too have had great luck with Redline Synthetic oils and gear lubricants . I get them through the mail (UPS) from MotorSport Sales in Dallas. Their web site is very basis but has ordering info. http://home.earthlink.net/~motorsportsales/index.html /Ken
