: Torque converter lockup question

I've been trying to determine this for a few days, but I give up. Traffic isn't playing nicely, and the trans in this car is difficult to read.

There are some transmissions, automatics of course, which will shift while "locked up", effectively making them manuals. Does the 5 speed in this car not lock 'till 5th? I know there is a BMW auto, from a few years back, which locked as early as 2nd, which is impressive.
