If you can find a set the #8 primary gears will lower your overall engine speed. There is also the "EPA box" from the late '80s that had taller gearing than the other boxes. I had one on my '86 S and 80mph was right about 3000rpm.
I am shocked to hear about the ratios on your BMW & Audi. Seema like really short gearing for a modern gearbox. My 5-speed Solstice GXP is turning about 2500rpm at 80!
