Depends on which speeds your changing gear at. Anything slower then 50mph for 5th I've found the MK4 flat as a pancake, and usually just leave in 5th when I'm cruising at 60mph. 6th your looking at 70mph plus it's just too tall. Using MK4 Mondeo, I've generally found it's better to match speed tobgear eh 30mph in 3rd 40- 4th and so on. 6th gear I've never really used, I potter along at 60mph.
