I've never driven a car that couldn't have benefitted from an extra gear, and that includes my current Lag with the 6 speed box. Cruising down the motorway at 70mph, you know it'd be just as happy in 7th if it had one.

No, you won't use 6th gear much around town, but the same was true of 5th. If you do any motorway driving at all, then you will use it and it'll take you all of a week before it becomes second nature. In the unlikely event that I'm wrong, and you still find the idea troublesome, you can always pretend you don't have the extra gear and just drive it like it's a 5 speed box
