Benvo during coding gave me the freeze frame info on my 6MT, had one mechanical overrev about 6 months prior to 8,800+rpm (likely due to wrong downshift)... 2 months later, differential nearly fell out of car due to bolt snap. BMWNA did come out and look at it, concluded that the diff bolt failure shouldn't have happened and approved the full diff and subframe replacement under warranty. Point is you're probably allowed a couple of "mulligans" with MT as long as it's not overly excessive (absolute amount and # of times), and with DCT probably a lot less to worry about.
