Thanks for the information on the BMW issued tool. I was aware the BMW techs have this tool to check for an over-rev but I was hoping someone could come up with a simple and inexpensive version that could be easily checked by the owner whenever he wanted. Like in the case when someone felt he may have over-reved the engine and just wanted to confirm what the maximum RPMs where since the device was last re-set.
Maybe someone like Ron Styger has an idea on how it may be accomplished for the masses.
: :This is the BMW part number for the diagnostic tool that accesses the OBD2 info. Smog, Mileage, RPM, fault codes in particular. there are some comments about this on this digest, search for "over-rev" or similar and I'm sure you will read about it. Now what would be better, would be a system like the ZR1 Corvette, where the valet key will not unlock the HP. Richard
