You see a LED right under the '6' on the rev counter.

That's the shift up light and should come on a little (eg. 500 to 800 rpm) before the rev limiter cuts in.

You're supposed to light it up regularly if you drive the car 'properly' :D

(after being run-in correctly of course...)

Bye, Arno.

I think after driving the car for a little while you'll know from the engine sound when it's time to shift. I never use the upshift light on my car.

Plus it's written somewhere but I can't recall it. Anyone remember how many RPM till redline on the US car?

Redline markers are for amatuers! :D
Specially on bikes, you look down to ride the RPM (this does not include keeping and 'eye' on the RPM peripherally) you're somebodies hood ornament. But there is a reason that RPM guages get the primary position.
