I will say though that during my first 1000 miles, especially during the cold-start period I would accidentally redline it quite a lot. Probably around 20-25 times since I've owned it. Hopefully if anything goes wrong, that won't be scrutinized.
What!? Is this sarcasm? Redlining during cold starts?
