try getting the brake pedal more in the middle of your foot, and then "twisting" your heel over. do it in your driveway tho, not flying down a road towards an intersection

I use the side of my foot. I find it easier that the 'classical' approach.

Cool video...

I think heel-toe shifting is different on every car because of the pedal set ups. I use the ball of my right foot on the brake and the side of my foot to blip the gas to match the rev. This technique works pretty well for me on the M3.

I also have to run the car in "sport" mode when heel-toe shifting as the M3 doesnt have rev quick enough when it is not on.

My 2 cents...

I have this problem with a 2002 330. "Blipping" the throttle isn't the right word, its more like "mashing" the throttle before the ECU wakes up and realizes you DO actually want to increase the rev's when the car is in neutral. Damn computers... I'm hoping the Dinan Stg 1 will help correct some of that problem.
