rofl i dont think that will help tho...
anyways, who would downshift from 6 - 1??
dont get me wrong...i dont drive manual, but it just doesnt sound rite to me...

do you came to a stop with only 10mph and down shift from 6 - 1 or you shift from 6 - 1 when you are doing 100mph and trying to engine brake it??

Yeah, I know what you're talking about. It sounds like you had it fixed and they put it back the wrong way perhaps. There are springs in your shifter (somewhere, you I can't see them) that tighten up depending on your rpms so that you don't downshift in a case that your wheels would be turning faster than your gears. In my car, it's hard to shift in to 1st with out almost stoping, unless I push pretty hard. I'm sure there are a lot of other threads about this because it was a big issue. BMW M3's had this problem, too.
