Yep that's what I think...BMW banks on people removing the limiter, BOOM warranty gone, one less car they gotta worry about. As for the tire thing, I was told once that the speed rating indicated on the tire shows the speed you got to travel at for an hour to damage the tire (if indicated speed is eclipsed that is). I guess I gotta wait till warranty runs out
