I have a 1995 525ia and it revs just over 3000 rpms at 80 mph. I was wondering if this is normal because my buddie has a 2001 525ia and it revs like 26000 at 80. I know for a fact that my car has like 5 more horespower. Does his car have an extra gear or what. Any help would be appreciated.

Completely different car (e34 vs e39), different motor (single vs. double vanos) different trans (5 speed auto I believe in the e39) different rear end, etc = different ratios and different rpms per mph.
