I may have over reved my car years ago when I first got it. Is there really a way the dealer can determine if the car has been over revved. I would like to find out. I wish the consumer could just plug in a lap top to their cars and download info like this and reprogram chips etc to their liking.
Okay so the shifter has its flaws. But it does have a good feel and is very accurate if your not trying to do super fast gear changes.(that is the only time I have had trouble) I have heard the E36 m3 transmission will actually flex and change the positioning of the gears, as felt through the shifter. In fact I beleive there is a product on the market that will stiffen the trans and resolve part of the problem. I not sure if this solves the problem totally. There are many M3 trackers who would also have this problem so I assume they have found a solution or shift better than us.
