    He meant that he had to hit third for 60, because of the gearing. He misspoke about the whole 4th gear issue. See: http://forums.motortrend.com/70/9305...ead/page2.html verified by one of the admins who have driven the 2.0t manual

    Thanks for that!

    question; how do editors not catch something like that in possibly the most important comparison for the segment within the last decade?

    I bet they caught the mistake, but they wanted the BMW to win so badly that they didn't bother to change it. Perhaps BMW made their wallets a little heavier too...

    ^^But I seriously doubt all that.

    It is a silly mistake for sure, though.

    The voiceover is recorded long after the actual test- he probably just flubbed that and included the "shift to 4th" comment in the wrong place. Either that or he meant third gear and just said 4th by mistake.
    I need 4th in the 1/4 in my V, as well...
