Going over 4k during the break-in cannot really void your warranty. I doubt the ECM logs anything other than hitting the actual rev limiter/fuel cut. Most do log this and keep it in some sort of persistent memory, I know BMW does on the M3. It actually came up in a lawsuit. The guy was trying to lemon the car and BMW brought up the fact that they had data showing that the rev limiter had been hit like 15 times or something. The guy's attorney simply argued that it had been in the shop so much, that it was impossible to determine who took it to the limiter (there were no date stamps on the data). The arbitrator found that BMW should buy back the M3 from what I understand.M3Killer said:I know Subaru says to keep the revs under 4K for the first 1K. I've passed that limit many times and was wondering if the dealer can download that info from my car's computer and make an issue reguarding a warranty claim?
Yeah, if it's the same kid I'm thinking of, he is a tremendous tool. I was just using his case as an example : )t00h0t said:I know the guy with the M3 you are talking about.. his issue was with his differential. (like my problem) he got it replaced 3 or 4 times... BMW tried to blame it on the over-revs... BMW also tried to blame it on his sound system... That kid kinda screwed BMW though.. he would brag about doing donuts, ruining his tires, bouncing off the rev limiter... the amazing part was his engine took all that abuse and never blew up!
