I have a question.

Hello fellow fanatics I am sitting here reading posts and I see people hitting 3k 5k rpm and I can only get up to just barely touch 3k. My question is how can I hit higher rpms? Now the tricky part is that I have an 01 steptronic 325. Thanks.

Assuming nothing is wrong with your car, press the gas pedal harder... If flooring the gas still leads to a shift at 3k rpm, something's wrong and you need to get the car diagnosed and fixed.

You have to switch up, and use your left foot on the accelerator.
Or, you are 85 years old, and your turn signal has been on for the last 25 miles.

Depends on if you're pressing the pedal to the metal or tapping it with the hangnail on your pinky-toe
