When are the best times to shift in the G20, I was under the understanding that you always shift @ redline, Am I wrong?

Thanks you your input.

It really depends on the circumstances and your powerband. Are you talking about racing, normal street driving, etc...?

For gas mileage consult your manual. It listed all recommended speeds to shift. For racing, of course, you want maximum acceleration so shifting just before redline would be ideal.

Normal driving, I usually shift at exactly 4000 rpm. Note that our engines are high-rev engines therefore smoother gear shift at higher rpm. Anything else is up to you......

What about going from 0-60 mph?? Do you redline every gear?

You only shift once going to 60 :p And yes, i'd redline first gear.
