The only switch I know of is the gearshift lever itself. Bump it over into the tiptronic gate and the transmission will automatically downshift to 4th if it was previously in 5th.

Of course, up until a week ago I didn't know I had fog lights...after two years of owning the car, so take this for whatever it's worth.

What size are your rear tires? Just want to make certain they're stock so we can rule that out.

What r.p.m. do you show at 70 with 4th gear selected?

If it were me, I'd get in the car and head for the highway/interstate. Selecting the gears myself using the tiptronic, I'd note the r.p.m. at your chosen speed in 4th gear, then select 5th and again note the r.p.m. Then I'd select "d" and note the r.p.m.

Then I'd pull off at the next exit ramp and come to a stop before accelerating normally up the on-ramp back onto the highway/interstate in "D". Upon reaching the designated speed in "D" I'd check the r.p.m. again and see if it was different than what I had before when shifting manually.

This should eliminate the possibility there's a problem with whatever switch tells the transmission to go into 4th when tiptronic is selected.

This may not be the problem, but the purpose is to methodically rule out the various things that might be causing the problem.

I'm curious what kind of fuel economy you're getting...though a lot of that is driving-style dependent.

Ok I'm back from my drive, 130 or so miles from my home in Valencia to Ventura/Oxnard down hwy 126 where the speed limit varies from 35 mph to 65 mph on the freeway section. I have an '04 coupe with a 5AT and stock rear gears, 70 MPH my tach read exactly 2500 RPM and 10 MPH faster that's 80 MPH for those of you counting the tach read 2900. To hit 3000 RPM I was traveling 82 MPH. So you're not taching 3K RPMs at 80 MPH but damn close. The one thing that might make a difference with my G35 is that I'm running 275/35X19" tires out back compared to OE. Test completed and no violations....

First of all changing the differential fluid has nothing to do with MPH vs RPMs. That fluid s/b changed every 30K miles. HAHA....if you showing 3K RPMs at 60 MPH in manual mode you need to shift gears until you get into 5th....

It might be a 6 speed, or geared differently.

That's not entirely surprising that the Chevy had much lower RPM. Gearing, motor performance, and the desired driving dynamics all have an impact. The Chevy will be much less responsive to throttle inputs than the G35, and will not accelerate with it. That's part of the price we pay for a performance oriented car.

My recollection is I'm turning roughly 2500 RPM 70 mph in my '04 5AT. Powertrain, wheels and tires are stock to the best of my knowledge (not sure about the final drive - bought it used and haven't opened up the diff).
